Al Jazeera, 24 Jun 2022
The world's top five emerging economies - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - are holding their annual summit virtually.
The meeting is taking place against a complex geopolitical backdrop.
From the war in Ukraine and trade disputes between China and the U-S, to a global economy trying to recover from the fallout of Covid-19.
Chinese President Xi Jinping - who's hosting this year's summit - has criticised the West's handling of the Ukraine crisis and called for co-ordination to prevent disruptions to the global economic recovery.
But role can BRICS play?
