As part of the 2023 Amazon Summit, which takes place in the city of Belém in Brazil, the People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Yván Gil, held a work meeting with economist Alessandro Texeira, adviser to the president of the BRICS Bank, Dilma Rousseff, with the aim of making an approach to this international cooperation mechanism that brings together countries such as Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
It is worth remembering that recently the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, expressed his intention to be part of the BRICS, with the aim of strengthening the economic development of the nation.
In this sense, during the meeting, Chancellor Yván Gil reiterated Venezuela’s support for the BRICS with a multicentric approach and the integrationist vision of the Bolivarian Revolution, a legacy of Commander Hugo Chávez and continued under the leadership of President Maduro.
The BRICS multilateral development bank – made up of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – was created in 2014, with the mission of financing infrastructure works and promoting sustainable development in these and other emerging economies:
“The BRICS are the driving force behind the emergence of the multipolar world, and now that the bloc is considering expanding to give participation to new countries, Venezuela made its entry proposal,” said President Maduro, during the broadcast of the “Con Maduro+” program, in its 11th edition.
