The NORTH WEST PROVINCE AND BRICS TRADE, TOURISM AND INVESTMENT EXPO is divided into three areas, viz: the Trade, Tourism and Culture Exhibition, The International Investors Conference and the Beneficiation Conference.

We are confident that the NORTH WEST PROVINCE AND BRICS TRADE, TOURISM AND INVESTMENT EXPO will only stimulate economic growth, but also foster trust and understanding between our countries by promoting trade, cultural and grass grassroots ex-change.

Further to the BRICS CO-OPERATION AGREEMENT signed by the Leaders of this region, we believe that the inaugural NORTH WEST PROVINCE AND BRICS TRADE, TOURISM AND INVESTMENT EXPO is a reflection of the fundamental importance of our multi lateral relationships with countries from this dynamic region.




I would like to thank the sponsors, the Task Team of the North West Provincial Government, the Project Management Team of BRICS EXPO (Pty) Ltd and all the participants for their significant contributions. Your participation will play an invaluable role in enhancing our political, commercial and personal partnerships with our friends from “BRICS” (Brazil, Russia, India and China).
