Leaders from the five BRICS countries told the press on Thursday that they have reached consensus on major issues like global economy and finance at a summit held in the southern Chinese resort city of Sanya.

"Documents adopted at the summit reflected the leaders' consensus on major issues like global economy, finance and development. The documents also outlined the countries' future cooperation," Chinese President Hu Jintao said at a joint press conference after the summit.

The leaders also agreed to deepen exchanges and cooperation in industry and commerce, science and technology as well as agriculture, Hu said.

"We agreed to hold the next BRICS summit in India next year," said Hu, who chaired Thursday's summit.

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said at the press conference that the BRICS countries will further strengthen coordination and increase dialogue.
