Russia Assumes BRICS Chairmanship: Putin Unveils Priorities for 2024

Russia has officially assumed the chairmanship of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) as of January 1st, marking the commencement of its leadership in the multinational association. Russian President Vladimir Putin unveiled the motto for this year’s BRICS Chairmanship: "Strengthening Multilateralism for Equitable Global Development and Security."

Here are the key points summarizing Putin's vision and objectives for BRICS 2024:

Focus on Collaborative Engagement: Putin emphasized Russia's commitment to fostering positive and constructive cooperation with all concerned nations during the BRICS Chairmanship. The Kremlin released a statement underscoring this objective, signaling Russia's intent to prioritize engagement on a global scale.

Three Pillars of Emphasis: Russia aims to bolster BRICS partnerships across three fundamental areas: politics and security, economy and finance, and cultural and humanitarian connections. Putin reiterated Russia's dedication to advancing collaboration in science, high technology, healthcare, environmental conservation, culture, sports, youth exchanges, and civil society.

Expanding Support and Shared Principles: Putin highlighted the growing appeal of BRICS, attracting more supporters and likeminded countries. He stressed the importance of shared principles within BRICS, including sovereign equality, mutual respect for development paths, consideration of mutual interests, consensus-building, and the pursuit of a multipolar global order. Additionally, he emphasized the need for collective solutions to global challenges.

Integration of New Participants: Putin emphasized the inclusion and integration of new participants into BRICS activities. While preserving traditional values and drawing on past experiences, Russia aims to harmoniously integrate new members into all facets of BRICS activities. Moreover, Putin expressed the intent to devise a new category for partner countries within BRICS and will assess the readiness of approximately 30 other nations to engage in the multidimensional BRICS agenda.

Russian President Putin’s outlined priorities for BRICS 2024 underscore a concerted effort to bolster cooperation, expand the alliance's influence, and integrate new partners into the association's multifaceted agenda. This year promises a focused and inclusive approach, fostering a stronger and more cohesive BRICS alliance on the global stage.
