We are honored to welcome Chinese Ambassador to Canada Lu Shaye, and the Charge d’Affaires of the Russian Embassy Mr. Vladimir Proskuryakov to this panel event, along with Professor Andrew Cooper, Associate Senior Fellow at the Centre for Global Cooperation Research.

In light of the recent international G7 and Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summits, which brought to surface a period of global uncertainty, this event will focus on the topic of China-Russia cooperation in global governance leading into the 10th annual BRICS Summit taking place in Johannesburg on July 25th-27th, 2018. Several important questions will be addressed at the event, in relation to recent world events whose full impacts have yet to be realized. What is the role of the BRICS in this age of increasing uncertainty? How will China and Russia approach the BRICS 2018 Johannesburg Summit? How will these countries address their shared security agenda over the denuclearization of North Korea? How can the BRICS build upon the agenda and accomplishments of the SCO Qingdao Summit?
