The 2nd Annual Doing Business with the BRICS Conference in Washington, DC
This event will allow you and your colleagues to interact with those officials from Russia, India, China, Brazil and South Africa seeking to expand trade, direct investments, business opportunities and open communication. Russia's WTO accession and other important commercial developments among the BRICS will stimulate new growth. Along with officials from the BRIC nations, there will executives and representatives from US corporations and officials from US Government agencies including the Departments of Commerce and State.
The five BRICS countries represent almost 3 billion people, with a combined nominal GDP of US$16 trillion and an estimated US$4 trillion in combined foreign reserves. Given that the BRICS nations encompass 30 percent of the world’s territory and 42 percent of the world’s population. These new developments demand new business relations between the BRICS and the United States, as there are a lot of new business opportunities to explore with these nations. With the downturn in the emerging markets at the beginning of 2014, even more attractive opportunities for acquisitions and investment may be opening up in the BRICS.
Panels will address vital topics of business, trade, energy and finance. There will be new opportunities to discuss privatization of Russia's top energy companies and other enterprises. The Conference will include presentations on energy and natural resources, high technology, mergers and acquisitions, economic development and public support for investments.
