Economic and Commercial Counselor of the Chinese Embassy in Cairo، Han Ping، stressed the importance of Egypt's participation in Brics Summit because it is an important country in Africa and Arab - Muslim world.
He added that during the summit Egypt presented its views on global issues and presented its vision of economic reforms،
"Egypt has strong relations with BRICS countries and is seeking further cooperation with them in the future. It is also currently a member of BRICS Plus mechanism، which helps them to join BRICS،" he said. Ping expressed his belief that Beijing would welcome Egypt's acceptance of Brics But this needs the approval of the five countries.
In response to a question about Egypt's invitation to participate Brics Plus meetings in the future، Ping said that Egypt is an important country and he hopes to continue its invitation in the future to attend these meetings in order to enhance cooperation with BRICS countries. He also noted that that joining Brics doesn’t depend only on the power of economy but rather on concerns over global issues such as terrorism، as stated in the final communiqué of the Summit.
In response to a question on the new world economic order، he said that Beijing is not seeking to establish a new system to replace the old system، but rather to rely on its philosophy to live together with our differences، such as the in the silk road and belt initiative.
"Brics Plus" and the participation of the developing countries in the G-20 gives voice to these countries to express their ideas on the international arena، unlike the previous ones، where only the G7 was present" Ping said، adding that changing the world economy requires joint efforts and ideas from all developing countries، and not Just from China.
