Against the backdrop of COVID-19, the 12th BRICS Summit achieved fruitful results in three key areas, political and security cooperation, economic cooperation, and people-to-people exchanges. The pandemic has brought new possibilities for future collaboration and prompted BRICS countries to step up their partnership on the new industrial revolution. China’s decision to launch an innovation center in Xiamen, Fujian Province, for this partnership is a strategic step to cement bonds between the five emerging economies.
