XIAMEN, China (Reuters) - The summit of BRICS nations in China is expected to reach consensus on opposing trade protectionism, China’s Vice Trade Minister Wang Shouwen said on Sunday.

The BRICS countries - made up of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - have enormous potential in e-commerce cooperation, Wang added, speaking on the first day of the summit in the southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen.
