The elusive agenda for IBSA

RSA President Jacob Zuma and six other South African Ministers (including Trade and Industry Minister, Rob Davies) will attend the fourth India, Brazil, South Africa (Ibsa) Summit, in Brazil, on Thursday, during which trilateral memoranda of understanding in the areas of science and technology, solar energy and intellectual property are likely to be signed, according to a statement from the President.

Details of this conference are sketchy and hard to come, especially the bit on IP. The IBSA website (here) is not that helpful although there is a good overview of the organisation (especially the difference between BRIC and IBSA) here. Some suggested topics for the IP agenda then, from Afro Leo:

One a slightly less flippant note, anyone with information relating to IP on the trilateral memoranda, please email it here.
