PM Narendra Modi To Discuss Rohingya Issue On Myanmar Trip

The VEB first deputy chairman has arrived in China ahead of the BRICS summit, scheduled to be held in Xiamen on September 3-5. A woman gestures to a boy as he poses for a photo on a beach adjacent to the venue for the upcoming BRICS Summit in Xiamen in southeastern China's Fujian Province, Saturday, Sept. In March, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China would explore options for expansion to a "Brics plus" and build a wider partnership through dialogue with developing countries and global organizations. A South African woman host earned more than women hosts in Brazil, China or India.

Asked about the issues he expects that will figure in the meet, Hu said: "They (Modi and Xi) should give a kind of signal that this standoff does not happen again".

BRICS is an informal association of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

Among made-in-China products, BRICS customers favoured the most clothes, accessories, mobile phones and electronic products, according to AliExpress, Alibaba's e-commerce site for cross-border exports.

If the two sides did not end the stand-off, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi might have skipped the summit, which would have cast "quite a shadow" over its deliberations, said Dr Raja Mohan, director of Carnegie India, a think-tank.

Expect a muted BRICS summit as participants tread on eggshells to prevent exposing divisions, said Shi Yinhong, an worldwide relations professor with Beijing's Renmin University. I am convinced that their implementation will contribute not only to economic growth, but also to the further integration between our countries, the article says. Together, the five accounted for 23 per cent of the 2016 global economy, nearly double their share in 2006.

Xi Jinping had delivered a keynote speech at the fifth BRICS summit in Durban, South Africa, in 2013, where he stressed that China would continue to strengthen cooperation with other BRICS countries in order to make economic growth of BRICS countries more robust and that will ultimately bring tangible benefits to people of all countries and make greater contribution to world peace and development. Brics countries have become a key force bolstering world economic growth, promoting changes in the global order and upholding peace and stability around the globe.

"Although the mechanism has seen ups and downs over the past years and each member faces its own set of challenges, they are like five fingers: short and long when extended, but a powerful fist when clenched together", the commentary said. The bloc's expansion could also be considered, as Egypt, Guinea, Mexico, Tajikistan and Thailand were invited as observer states.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the five countries were not permanent invitees but they will participate only this year. The Myanmarese president and Suu Kyi had visited India previous year.
