BRICS DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY AND RUSSIA’S PRIORITIES


Schedule: 8 April 2020, 11.00 – 13.00

BRICS transregional partnership is a unique framework for international cooperation allowing its Member States to collaborate effectively in matters of global governance, sustainable development, security, energy, healthcare, digital transformation, trade and investment, innovation and sectoral project development. “The Partnership of the Five”, rooted in the principle of sovereign equality, is ceaselessly claiming its actorness in the face of emerging challenges towards the global system. That said, BRICS as it presently stands requires a fundamental “reboot” providing new strategic guidelines and a broadened range of joint projects allowing for private sector and development institutions involvement. Part of this reboot is the new Economic Partnership Strategy 2025.

Russia’s 2020 BRICS chairmanship is held under the motto “BRICS Strategic Partnership for Global Stability, Shared Security and Innovative Growth.” This offers a window of opportunity to define guidelines for pragmatic cooperation and lay the groundwork for mitigation of global security risks and enhancement of forecasting capabilities so as to develop effective strategies for preventive action.

The event will feature a presentation of the report developed by HSE experts and entitled «BRICS Development Strategy and Russia’s Priorities».

Main topics of discussion:

  • The role of BRICS in global economic governance and prospects for expanding its relations with third parties, e.g. in Eurasia.
  • The new BRICS Economic Partnership Strategy 2025.
  • Prospects for development of joint projects. The role of the BRICS New Development Bank.
  • Russia’s strategic objectives in BRICS and priorities during its 2020 BRICS chairmanship.

The round table is part of the XXI April International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development official programme (6-10 April 2020). Further information could be found on the Conference website - https://conf.hse.ru/en/2020.
