EIRNS—Preparing for the BRICS Summit, scheduled to be held in September in Xiamen, an unprecedented number of meetings are taking place involving representatives of the five-nation BRICS.

At the 2017 BRICS labour and employment ministers’ meeting that took place today in Beijing, China’s Minister of Human Resources and Social Security Yin Weimin said "progress in science and technology and changes in economic and demographic structure have brought new challenges to labour markets around the world, and the international community should find common ways of dealing with them," Xinhua reported. Yin said China has made employment a priority and tried to improve the quality of employment through vocational training.

On the sidelines of the meeting of the security heads of the BRICS nations, China and Russia held their fourth meeting on institutional cooperation in law enforcement and security in Beijing today. The meeting was co-chaired by Meng Jianzhu, member
of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and head of the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the CPC Central Committee, and Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, Xinhua reported.

Xinhua reported Meng as saying "China-Russia ties have a steady and healthy development guided by the two countries’ leaders," pointing out that "the two sides should implement the consensus reached by the two leaders, strengthen cooperation in law enforcement and security, and make efforts to work through
security challenges." Patrushev said, "Russia is ready to work closely with China to safeguard the two countries’ security interest."
