The International Bar Association (IBA) is holding a conference presenting the opportunties available in the BRICS and MINT countries.

This conference has been developed by IBA Asia Pacific Regional Forum, IBA European Regional Forum, IBA Latin American Regional Forum, IBA African Regional Forum and IBA North American Regional Forum, supported by the IBA Corporate and M&A Law Committee, the IBA Litigation Committee.

Since 2001 the emerging economies of BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) – later defined as BRICS by adding South Africa to the list – have been recognised as the symbols of rapid growth and opportunity in the global economy. Today, Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey (MINT) are new emerging global economic giants. MINT GDP growth forecasts are tremendous, indicating that MINT most likely will be changing the global economic landscape in the next years. The conference will focus on identifying business opportunities and challenges international business can face when working in and with BRICS, MINT and other growth markets.

Conference topics Include:

  • Business dynamics of BRICS and MINT markets
  • Practising law and the legal profession in BRICS and MINT countries
  • Inbound and outbound M&A activities
  • Capital markets and corporate finance
  • Dispute resolution and arbitration
