Pretoria - South Africa would be ready to host a planned development bank for the emerging economies grouping of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (Brics) grouping, it said on Monday.

Finance ministers from the five countries are already working on feasibility studies for the creation of a Brics bank expected to mobilise resources for infrastuctural development projects in developing countries.

"I cannot say if South Africa will be chosen as the site of this institution, but I can indicate that South Africa will be prepared to host such a bank," South Africa's Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Ebrahim Ebrahim said.

South Africa is hosting the Brics summit in March next year.
