Is South Africa leveraging its Brics membership?

Political analyst Sanusha Naidu talks to Bongani Bingwa to give more insight on the summit.

South Africa has gained global recognition because of the summit, but I do think that there are some areas where we need to move forward. We would like to see more traction in terms of getting more projects through the National Development Bank.

Sanusha Naidu, Political analyst

In the Brics declaration, the countries are calling for the reform of the United Nations Security Council whose powers they believe are asymmetrical, she explains.

The question would be in what context and what framework would the reform take place? How will China and Russia look at reform and which countries do they think will be let into the reformed UN Security Council?
