South Africa formally invited into BRIC

Quote:
"China, in its capacity as rotating chairperson of the Bric formation, based on agreement reached by the Bric member states, invited South Africa as a full member into what will in future be called Brics," Nkoana-Mashabane told journalists in Pretoria.

 

Being from South Africa I'm pretty happy about it, I cannot help but think it was a political move though. Really makes no sense to include South Africa when you look at the other members.

 

So it's Brazil, Russia, India, China and now South Africa.

More importantly, would they ever include a country that would mess up the acronym they have going? BRICD just doesn't have the same ring does it?
