BRICS Solutions Awards Competition To Be Held In Year Of Russia’s Chairmanship

The Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI) in cooperation with the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry will organise the BRICS Solutions Awards competition of the best solutions and practices of the BRICS countries in various spheres. The competition will be held with the support of the BRICS Business Council.

Its participants will present projects in 8 nominations, including Climate and Environmental Technologies, Artificial Intelligence and Digital Services, Competences and Human Resources Development. 

Mikhail Makarov, Director of the International Relations Office of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives to Promote New Projects (ASI), noted during his speech at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) that this year’s competition will be held for the 4th time. Submission of applications is open until 31 July. The best practices will be examined with the participation of a qualified international jury, which will make the process transparent and fair. 

“This competition was held in 2020, when Russia was the chair of BRICS, we also held it in India and China. The agenda changes every year depending on the tasks of the presiding country in the association. If we talk about the goals of the competition, then besides the obvious collection of the best technological practices, it is more important for us to launch a dialogue on the future of the technology sector and the formation of a system of independent and multipolar cooperation,” said Mikhail Makarov.

The results of the competition will be summarised during the BRICS Business Council meeting, ahead of the BRICS summit scheduled for October 2024.
