DR Iqbal Survé applauds SA Chapter of BRICS Business Council successes

Dr Iqbal Survé, outgoing chairperson of the BRICS Business Council (the South African Chapter) has applauded the successful efforts of the chapter. The South African chapter of the Business Council held a successful annual meeting in KwaZulu Natal earlier in the year.

Dr Survé described the opportunity of  hosting of the BRICS Business Council as a ‘honour and privilege’ both for South Africa and him.

The outgoing chair said in a statement, “during this time, we have worked collaboratively to build the BRICS Business Council and have developed close ties with our colleagues in the BRICS countries, as a result.”

Survé thanked all outgoing members of the South Africa BRICS Business Council for their commitment and dedication to serving their country through the Council.

Survé said: “We have been party to many successes in the BRICS Business Council such as the MOU on Strategic Cooperation with the New Development Bank signed in 2017; the ongoing and important discussions in  relation to the BRICS Credit Rating Agency; the New International Payment System (NIPS); the Roadmap on Cooperation in Eliminating Trade Barriers and the proposed BRICS Business Women’s Alliance, referred to in the Johannesburg Declaration.

“These are but a few of the important initiatives that have arisen directly within the framework of the BRICS Business Council.”

According to the outgoing chair, most the newly established institutions are a result of the newly reconstituted Council in collaboration with the Council Chapters, through nine working groups that constitute the engine of the BRICS Business council.
