In July 2017, South Africa ANC’s international relations subcommittee plans to push for the establishment of a BRICS ratings agency to be official party policy. The International Criminal Court, World Bank and International Monetary Fund are mentioned for their “stubborn persistence of imperial designs”.


Regarding economic growth, BRICs are ahead of the projections made in 2001, South Africa not included, 18% of the world's GDP, above Goldman Sachs's forecast of 14.2% however, those analyzing the model of growth say that it ignores the finite nature of fossil fuel, uranium, and other resources. BRICS comprises five strategic partners, all of which have a strong regional leadership and major participation in the global economy.


Together, BRICS represents 46% of the world population, having 30% of the world GDP and 17% share in the world trade. Between 2002 and 2012, intra-BRICS trade increased 922%, from US$ 27 to 276 billion, while between 2010 and 2012, BRICS international trade rose 29%, from US$ 4.7 to 6.1 trillion dollars.
