On the sidelines of the 11th BRICS summit, PM Modi will meet Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro to discuss ways to enhance the bilateral strategic partnership.
The Prime Minister is scheduled to hold separate bilateral meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday.
"I am sure the BRICS Summit will enhance cultural and economic linkages between BRICS nations," he said.
BRICS is the acronym coined for an association of five major emerging national economies – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. This year's event is being held under the theme BRICS: Economic Growth for an Innovative Future.
This will be the sixth time PM Modi is participating in the BRICS summit, his first being at Fortaleza, also in Brazil in 2014.
Describing his welcome as "as vibrant as BRICS itself", Spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs Raveesh Kumar tweeted, "PM @narendramodi arrives in Brasilia to participate in the 11th #BRICS Summit. This year's Summit under the theme “BRICS: Economic Growth for an Innovative Future” will further strengthen the traditional ties among the BRICS countries."
