Southern powerhouses home in on trade and technology cooperation

Abstract:
Although largely unheralded, the second India, Brazil, South Africa Dialogue Forum (Ibsa) summit saw further development of functional cooperation between the three major developing powers.

Energy, climate change, science and technology, innovation, health, intellectual property, and trade were all issues covered by the summit and its asso- ciated specialised forums. Memoradums of understanding (MoUs) were signed on wind energy, education, customs and excise, health, public administration, social issues, and culture.

"Ideally, there should be two from each country, to allow for one public-sector and one private-sector partner each," he elucidates. "The aim is to develop relationships with the private sectors of the three countries and develop new products." The proposals should be, ideally, in one of the six research areas already identified by Ibsa " biotechnology, information and communications technology, HIV/Aids, nanotechnology, ocean-ography, and tuberculosis " although proposals in other areas, especially energy and climate change, may also be considered.
