The 5th BRICS summit will take place in Durban, South Africa, 25-27 March 2013. Standard Bank of South Africa, which is now owned 20 percent by China, has a strong research unit that produces good analysis on a variety of African economic issues. On 12 February 2013, for example, it released one called "BRICS Trade is Flourishing, And Africa Remains a Pivot."
