Slutsky agrees with Xi’s viewpoint as the Chinese president noted in this speech that efforts should be made to fully unlock economic potential and resolute in rejecting unilateralism and protectionism to maintain rule-based multilateral trading system.”’

We must continue to broaden and deepen cooperation for the BRICS countries, because BRICS is not just about the five countries, it is about creating a partnership with the rest of the world, especially developing countries.

He said that protectionism runs contrary to the economic development of all the countries and will undermine the global economy.

For Anil Sooklal, Deputy Director General at the Department of International Relations and Cooperation in South Africa, “we must continue to broaden and deepen cooperation for the BRICS countries, because BRICS is not just about the five countries, it is about creating a partnership with the rest of the world, especially developing countries’‘.
