Representatives of BRICS Countries to Continue Work at Russia’s Biggest Business Events
At the BRICS Business Forum in Brazil’s capital, Russian President Vladimir Putin invited participants to continue their work at the BRICS summit in St. Petersburg in July 2020. He also invited official representatives and business leaders of BRICS member countries to attend major business forums in Russia, including the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, scheduled for 3–6 June 2020, and the Eastern Economic Forum 2–5 September 2020 in Vladivostok.
Vladimir Putin noted joint efforts to promote mutual trade and investment, as well as ties between our economies, and said that with Russia assuming the presidency of BRICS next year, the matters of further expanding intra-BRICS trade and investment collaboration would be among key priorities.
“First of all, we are planning to propose that BRICS countries update the Economic Partnership Strategy, which was adopted at the 2015 summit in Russia. It would be appropriate to think about what new goals our association should set, and what truly large-scale joint tasks in trade, finance and investment we should focus on,” said the President of Russia.
