The start of "Golden Decade" of BRICS is a result of joint efforts and aspirations of member countries to find a new geopolitical balance in a changing world.

The stability and mutual advantageous relationship of member countries is a key point of President Xi Jinping's speech.

In Xiamen, I saw one of the most advanced cities with unique set of characteristics which is the reflection of special elements of BRICS countries, and summation of them will guarantee prosperity of our mutual future.

"One of the key things is the people-to-people exchanges...It's about culture and transforming the world from a big place into a small village. It goes beyond economics and politics."

We are now living in the period of BRICS, because the economic map is going to change completely, because of the new rising economics now. The new economics are coming. President Xi Jinping is spot-on when he focuses on economy.

In my country, there is a proverb that goes something like this "at every kilometer, there is a Chinese project." Everything is being built by China in my country. Hospitals, seaports, roads, all these are made by Chinese. We are looking forward to more cooperation in the future, because China is a great partner to my country.

President Xi Jinping talked about the strategic cooperation among the developing countries and I think it is right for this situation. Most of the economies’ developments are slowing down and we need to cooperate to develop the economy.

I think this conference gave a positive signal to us as it talked about important issues in relation to cooperation among BRICS countries and emerging markets like my country Egypt and South Africa. It also stresses that developing countries can have a powerful voice against the domination of those big countries in trade and the economy. I think BRICS is a good example. Its confirmation about the importance of the dialogue among BRICS countries and other developing countries is vital in building a freer trade system in the world.
