BRICS Coordinates Stance

BEIJING — Leaders from five of the world's top emerging economies will discuss a coordinated stance on economic issues such as commodity price fluctuations at the mid-April BRICS summit, Assistant Chinese Foreign Minister Wu Hailong said Saturday.

"We hope all sides can strengthen coordination and mutual cooperation on reform of the international currency system, commodity price fluctuations, climate change and sustainable development," Wu told a news conference.

China hoped that the summit, which will bring together leaders of China, Russia, India, Brazil and South Africa in the southern Chinese beach resort of Sanya, would be able to coalesce views ahead of the G20 summit in Cannes, France, later this year, Wu said.
