Description

As preparations begin for the 8th BRICS Summit in October 2016 hosted in Goa, India, NewsClick speaks with Brazilian Economist Adhemar Mineiro on foreign policy challenges under interim President Michel Temer. Temer’s Foreign Minister Jose Serra has been quick in ensuring a sharp right turn in Brazil’s foreign policy. The right wing interim Government which has no popular mandate is actively considering deeper engagement with the US and EU and breaking ranks with developing countries at the WTO. Its approach towards BRICS and south-south cooperation is yet unclear.
