About BRICS

The leaders of BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) countries met for the first time in St. Petersburg, Russia, on the margins of G8 Outreach Summit in July 2006. Shortly afterwards, in September 2006, the group was formalised as BRIC during the 1st BRIC Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, which met on the sidelines of the General Debate of the UN Assembly in New York City.

After a series of high level meetings, the 1st BRIC summit was held in Yekaterinburg, Russia on 16 June 2009.

Three Pillars of BRICS

Political and Security

To enhance cooperation and dialogue on issues of global and regional security, developments in the global political space as well as the reform of the multilateral system to make it relevent for the 21st century. Cooperation on Countering Terrorism and its financing remains an important element under this pillar

Economic and Financial

To promote economic growth and development for mutual prosperity through expansion of intra-BRICS cooperation in sectors such as trade, agriculture, infrastructure, small and medium enterprises, energy, finance & banking etc. BRICS cooperation under this pillar is aimed to promote collaborative approaches as well as innovative methods for the attainment of Sustainable development Goals.

Cultural and People-to-people exchanges

To enrich intra-BRICS people to people contacts in cultural , academic, youth, sports, business, through regular exchanges. Exchanges among Parliamentarians, young scientists etc. are also held under this pillar of BRICS cooperation.
