BRICS should help entrepreneurs: India

Jaishankar calls for global reforms

Member countries of the BRICS group should assist private entrepreneurs to help them deal with the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar said on Monday. He also spoke of the need for reform in the multilateral global platforms during the videoconference of Foreign Ministers of the BRICS group which was convened by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

“He [Mr. Jaishankar] emphasised that we need to provide support to businesses, especially MSMEs, to tide over the crisis and ensure livelihoods are not lost. The Minister emphasised that the pandemic is not only posing a great risk to the health and well being of humanity but is also severely impacting global economy,” said a government release.

China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi, South African Minister of International Relations Grace Naledi Pandor and Brazilian Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo participated.
