At the recently concluded G20 Leaders’ Summit in Australia, the BRICS – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – countries announced that an interim board of directors has been constituted to establish the National Development Bank (NDB) – an IMF-like institution specifically designed to support the five economies. Also, the BRICS leaders urged their finance ministers to appoint an NDB president and vice-president well before the next BRICS summit scheduled to hold in Russia next year. Set up to counter the dominance of the United States exerted via the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the core objective of the NDB is to foster greater financial and development cooperation among the five emerging markets, four of which account for 41 percent of the world’s population. 

The Southern African Customs Union (Sacu) said on Tuesday it was still committed to negotiations with India over a delayed preferential trade agreement (PTA). “We are still confident we will come to an agreement with India,” Sacu deputy director for trade negotiations Rolf-Joacim Otto told a Sapa correspondent on the sidelines of Botswana’s global expo business conference in Gaborone. First launched in 2007, the PTA seeks to increase trade between Sacu and India by giving each party’s products and services preference over other regions. Sacu is made up of Botswana, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland, and Namibia.
