What is the difference between BRIC & BRICS?

What is the difference between BRIC & BRICS or BRICSA? Is it just addition of South Africa or is there more to it?
CAPF 2011 Rank 70 | UPSC CSE 2013 | Sociology | Geography | IFoS 2013 interview . Whatever doesn't kill you....Makes you...Stranger!


  • BRIC - Brazil , Russia, India , China

    BRICS or BRICSA - Brazil , Russia, India , China, South Africa
  • Simple google would have done
  • BRICS = BRIC + S (South Africa)
    I am a real ghost (after dead type). I am being honest. Boooooo......
  • BRICS was BRIC before South Africa joined in 2010
    Attempts - 3, Mains - 3, Interview - 0
  • @rahulkoppati

    do look at the thread timeline and answer. It was asked in March 2012 :) If I go to 16th century and say Mobile phone, it will be godly :) Ain't it. In 2012, IBSA, BRIC, BRICS were all new :P

    My request, do not revive old threads.
