from The BRICS Post:
The 6th BRICS Summit was a resounding success. No previous summit generated greater interest in the global media. While major Western newspapers had consistently neglected the yearly gatherings in the past (or generally described it as a misguided idea), leading global voices such as The Economist and The Financial Times both reported on last week’s meeting.
Despite the summit’s distant location, civil society had a strong presence and organized a fascinating array of events on the sidelines of the summit, involving academics, activists and NGOs that work on human rights and environmental issues.
Furthermore, the meeting achieved its main goal, and five years after its first presidential summit in 2009, the BRICS grouping has now finally gained an institutional dimension.
