Greetings from the BRICS Chamber of Commerce and Industry!
The rise and rise of the BRICS bloc is a definite marker of the new emerging world order one that is both political and economic in nature and is a reflection of the global power shift and the realities of the 21st century.
To advance the broad agenda of BRICS nations, the BRICS Chamber of Commerce and Industry was founded in the year 2012 by eminent professionals and entrepreneurs. The Chamber is a not-for-profit and non-governmental organization and has been actively promoting commerce and industry in the BRICS nations.
The Chamber’s vision is to build an enabling ecosystem especially for entrepreneurs and SME segment from different parts of the country. To this end, it organizes trade fairs, exhibitions, seminars, symposiums, lectures and business campaigns from time to time to enhance institutional links and business relations between BRICS countries and other friendly nations. It promotes business interactions among members by organizing regular visits and other forms of interactions in key areas of Digital Economy, Food Processing & Agri Business, Manufacturing, Rural and Affordable Health Care, Logistics and Supply Chain, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and Social Development.
While the BRICS nations remain at the centre of all activities, the Chamber has taken in its credo to reach out to and enable young entrepreneurs from other friendly nations too. It proposes to be the ‘voice’ of young entrepreneurs and champion their business success.
