Amid border tension on Doklam, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will attend 9th BRICS Summit in Xiamen, China from 3-5 September 2017.
In his Facebook post, the Prime Minister said:”India had the privilege of hosting the previous Summit in Goa in October last year. I look forward to building upon the results and outcomes of the Goa Summit. I also look forward to productive discussions and positive outcomes that will support the agenda of a stronger BRICS partnership under the chairmanship of China.”
PM Modi will also interact with the BRICS Business Council represented by captains of industry from all five countries, he said.
In addition, he will also engage with leaders of nine other countries, including BRICS partners, in an Emerging Markets and Developing Countries Dialogue, hosted by President Xi Jinping on 5 September.
“I will have the opportunity to meet leaders bilaterally on the sidelines of the Summit. India attaches high importance to the role of BRICS that has begun a second decade of its partnership for progress and peace. BRICS has important contributions to make in addressing global challenges and upholding world peace and security,” said PM Modi.
