On June 29 at 12:00 Moscow time (GMT+3), the Valdai Club hosted an expert discussion, titled “BRICS and the Political Economy of the New World Order.”
Under the stress experienced by the traditional institutions of globalisation and global governance, the BRICS association (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) is becoming the most important centre for the formation of a positive agenda on a global scale. The military-political conflict between Russia and the West, as well as the growing confrontation between the United States and China, has led to an increased threat of a split in the world and the destruction of common interconnectedness, spelling an end for the preservation of free trade and, in general, the ability of mankind to respond to its most important security and development challenges in unison.
The central question that arises is the following: What contribution can the BRICS make to maintain global stability and solve the main tasks facing all countries of the world? Participants in the discussion tried to answer these and other questions.
