The Presidential Library to host the 1st International Municipal BRICS Forum

21 September 2019

The Presidential Library will become the venue for the events of the 1st International Municipal BRICS Forum (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). The forum will be held in St. Petersburg on September 20-22, 2019 with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

The international project will become a new platform for cooperation in social, economic and business projects between the BRICS municipalities.

In 2019 the forum will bring together legislative and executive authorities, including representatives of the Federation Council and the State Duma of the Russian Federation, representatives of major businesses, international associations and public non-profit organizations; heads of local governments, international experts and analysts. Consuls of the BRICS countries and representatives of business circles will head foreign delegations.

The main theme of the 1st International Municipal BRICS Forum is the concept of practical proposals at the BRICS regional level “From Words to Deeds”. It covers a wide range of issues: economy and business, scientific and technological progress, municipal digitization, preservation of traditions and cultural export, ecology and long-term strategic projects. Particular attention will be paid to the development of sports as an element for unifying cultures.

On September 21, 2019, events in the Presidential Library will focus on the opening of international state-of-the-art branches of interactive libraries and special municipal economic zones related to the development of the BRICS economy.

The forum serves as a platform for establishment of business contacts and further promotion of ideas falling under the objectives of the project. Its programme will include panel discussions, negotiations, signing of protocols of intent, contracts, interregional and international agreements. A road map to effective cooperation between BRICS municipalities will be also formulated.
