South Africa’s membership of the BRICS forum has become a vital element if its global economic strategy and is viewed as a catalyst and enabling tool for pursuit and achievement of South Africa’s foreign policy priorities including the promotion of the African agenda, global reforms and South to South cooperation.

As part of the effort to promote BRICS in South Africa, Ministerial Road show was held in all provinces. The Northern Cape held their event on 19 July 2018 in Upington.
