"Economic cooperation is the foundation of the BRICS mechanism," Xi said in a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the BRICS Business Forum in the southeastern city of Xiamen.

Xi said this year BRICS countries have made progress in the operation of the New Development Bank and Contingent Reserve Arrangement and in e-commerce, trade and investment facilitation, trade in services, local currency bond issuance, scientific and technological innovation, industrial cooperation and public-private partnership.

He said BRICS countries should implement agreements and consensus already reached while actively exploring new ways and areas of practical cooperation.

BRICS groups five emerging-market countries -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The cooperation framework was set up in 2006.
