Before his departure yesterday, PM Modi in a series of tweets said, he is looking forward for exchanging views with leaders to further strengthen intra BRICS cooperation. On the sidelines of the Summit, he will address the BRICS Business Forum and interact with BRICS Business Council as well as the New Development Bank.
The Prime Minister said, the visit to Brazil will give him an opportunity to hold talks with President Jair M. Bolsonaro on ways to deepen the India-Brazil strategic partnership. He said, there is great potential in sectors like trade, defence, agriculture and energy.
BRICS will also discuss counter-terrorism cooperation as one of its priority areas this year. BRICS Innovation Network, BRICS Institute of Future Network and a Women Business Alliance will also be launched.
