The 6th BRICS summit is the sixth annual diplomatic meeting of the BRICS, a grouping of major emerging economies that includes Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. It is hosted by Brazil, as the first host country of the current five-year summit cycle;[3] the host city is Fortaleza.[4] Argentine President Cristina Kirchner was a special guest of the summit. Though Brazil hosted a four-member BRIC summit in April 2010, 2014 will mark its first full BRICS summit;[5] the 2010 summit in Brasília did not officially include South Africa, who were only invited as guests in a prelude to full membership, which they achieved in December 2010.[6] Most importantly, the New Development Bank was officially inaugurated.


Following the 2013 BRICS summit in Durban, South Africa, the BRICS countries released a joint statement summarising the results of their discussions and naming Brazil as the host country for the 2014 summit.[3] Having agreed to set up a new international development bank during the 2013 summit,[7] the member countries reportedly intend to complete the arrangements prior to the 2014 summit.[8] The summit was initially scheduled for March 2014, but was shifted to a later date at China's request; it was held on 14–16 July 2014.[9]

Invited leaders


The BRICS Development Bank was due to be inaugurated and Shanghai was selected as its headquarters.[17] On 15 July, the group signed a document to create the US$100 billion BRICS Development Bank and a reserve currency pool worth over another US$100 billion. Documents on cooperation between BRICS export credit agencies and an agreement of cooperation on innovation were also signed.[18] In a press release, the group wrote: "We remain disappointed and seriously concerned with the current non-implementation of the 2010 International Monetary Fund (IMF) reforms, which negatively impacts on the IMF's legitimacy, credibility and effectiveness."[19] It was read as a rival to the IMF and World Bank.[20] The first president will be from India.[21]


Russian President Vladimir Putin said of the summit that it sought to reduce dependency on the U.S. dollar and strengthen the rule of international law:[22]

In the BRICS case we see a whole set of coinciding strategic interests. First of all, this is the common intention to reform the international monetary and financial system. In the present form it is unjust to the BRICS countries and to new economies in general. We should take a more active part in the IMF and the World Bank's decision-making system. The international monetary system itself depends a lot on the US dollar, or, to be precise, on the monetary and financial policy of the US authorities. The BRICS countries want to change this.
