The 8th BRICS Summit, under the Chairmanship of India, with the theme, Building Responsive, Inclusive and Collective Solutions, will take place on October 15-16, 2016 in Goa

During India’s BRICS Chairmanship, a five-pronged approach will be adopted:

(i)   Institution building to further deepen, sustain and institutionalize BRICS cooperation;

(ii)  Implementation of the decisions from previous Summits;

(iii) Integrating the existing cooperation mechanisms;

(iv) Innovation, i.e., new cooperation mechanisms; and

(v)  Continuity, i.e., continuation of mutually agreed existing BRICS cooperation mechanisms.

In short, the Indian approach towards its BRICS Chairmanship could be captured by ‘IIIIC or I4C’.

The focus during India’s BRICS Chairmanship will be on enhanced people-to-people (P2P) contacts of BRICS member states, especially youth. In this context, India has planned activities like U-17 Football Tournament, Youth Summit, Young Diplomats’ Forum, Film Festival etc.
