Brics Agenda for Trade and Resilient Supply Chains

SAIIA’s Senior Researcher in our Economic Diplomacy programme, Cyril Prinsloo, was invited to participate in the 13th BRICS Academic Forum 2021. His intervention on the panel discussion “BRICS agenda for trade and resilient supply chains” evaluated how well intra-BRICS trade navigated the global pandemic, as well as other ongoing geo-economic challenges (such as GVC nationalism, protectionism, etc.). While intra-BRICS trade proved to be resilient throughout the pandemic, intra-BRICS direct investment remains low and necessitates more policy intervention.
