Sports Tournament, 4 Other Big Ideas From PM Modi at BRICS Summit

PM Narendra Modi addressing the 7th BRICS Summit in Russia

Ufa, Russia: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Seventh BRICS summit in Russia earlier today. In his address, PM Modi thanked the BRICS nations for their active support and participation on the International Day of Yoga held on June 21. During his address to the leaders of the other nations in the grouping, he made some interesting suggestions.

Here are five great ideas suggested by the Prime Minister:

  1. We should start a sports tournament for the BRICS nations.

  2. Digital technology can play a crucial role in financial inclusion and delivery of services to everyone - sharing best practices among BRICS members should be made a priority.

  3. I would like to see the first major project funded by the New Development Bank to be in the area of clean energy.

  4. I propose a BRICS Agriculture Research Centre, which would be a big gift to the world.

  5. Let us use our expertise to enable better access to water, efficient water use and potable water supply.
