At the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will virtually attend the 14th BRICS Summit organized by China on 23-24 June.
The conference will see a high-level dialogue on global development between the visiting countries on June 24.
The Ministry of External Affairs said that BRICS has become a forum for all developing countries to discuss and deliberate on issues of common concern.
BRICS countries have regularly called for reform of the multilateral system to make it more representative and inclusive.
The Ministry of External Affairs said, “Intra-BRICS cooperation in areas such as counter-terrorism, trade, health, traditional medicine, environment, science, technology, innovation, agriculture, technical and vocational education and training and MSMEs are to be discussed during the 14th BRICS summit.”
Apart from this, issues like reforming the multilateral system, combating the Kovid-19 epidemic and global economic recovery are also likely to be discussed.
Ahead of the summit, Modi will attend the opening ceremony of the BRICS Business Forum on Wednesday through a recorded keynote address.
