The BRICS economic alliance shifted the geopolitical landscape when it announced an expansion invitation to six nations. Of those, five countries responded with acceptance, being the first countries introduced to the bloc since 2001. Those nations included Saudi Arabia, Iran, Egypt, Ethiopia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Now, that expansion is already proving its worth. Indeed, amid the BRICS dominance of the sector, both China and Iran have set a major oil record. Specifically, the latter has reached a six-year high in oil exports due in large part to its increased sales to China.
