Expansion of the BRICS and SCO. An Expert Discussion
Valdai Club Conference Hall, Tsvetnoy Boulevard 16/1, Moscow, Russia
List of speakers

On September 29 at 11:00 a.m. Moscow Time, the Valdai Club, together with the CITIC Foundation for Reform and Development Studies of China, hosted an expert discussion, titled “Prospects and main directions for the expansion of the BRICS and SCO”.

The year of China’s presidency in the BRICS gave a powerful impetus to the development of the BRICS+ format and the interaction of the “five” countries with other developing countries. In June 2022, countries such as Algeria, Argentina and Iran applied to join BRICS. Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Turkey announced plans to apply in a similar way, which indicates the growing attractiveness of the association in the global economy.
