International Municipal BRICS Forum
The International Municipal BRICS Forum is an important platform for the exchange of experience and ideas between representatives of regional and municipal governments from the BRICS countries, as well as for building effective business communications with entrepreneurs from Russia and other partner countries. The event is supported by the Presidential Administration and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as by the Federal Agency "Rossotrudnichestvo" and the Government of Moscow.

Under the decision of Yuri Ushakov, Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation, the IMBRICS Forum is included in the Action Plan of the Russian Federation's Chairmanship in the BRICS Interstate Association in 2024 (paragraph 147).

In 2022, the IMBRICS Forum was included in the text of the Beijing Declaration of the XIV BRICS Summit (paragraph 70) and is designated as a significant mechanism for promoting urban development and establishing links between twinning cities of the BRICS countries within the framework of the Sustainable Development Agenda until 2030.

On January 1, Russia was passed the baton of the BRICS chairmanship, an association which, according to the decision adopted by the 15th BRICS Summit in August 2022, now includes 10 countries. Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates joined BRICS as new full members which is a strong indication of the growing authority of the association and its role in international affairs.

BRICS is attracting an ever increasing number of supporters and like-minded countries that share its underlying principles, namely, sovereign equality, respect for the chosen path of development, mutual consideration of interests, openness, consensus, the aspiration to form a multipolar international order and a fair global financial and trade system, and pursuit of collective solutions to top challenges of our time.
Vladimir Putin
President of the Russian Federation
  • Sergey Sobyanin
    Mayor of Moscow
    "Moscow is one of the most dynamic cities in the world. The scale and speed of change require digitalisation and electronic master planning in urban development. A ‘Digital Twin’ project has already been created, reflecting the changes taking place both on the surface and in the underground part of the city. I have set a task to develop a dynamic model that allows to forecast the development of Moscow and to solve the issues of providing engineering, transport and social infrastructure in an optimal and comprehensive way. A comfortable investment climate has been created in Moscow, which is evidenced by the volume of investments in the capital's economy in 2023. Last year, approximately RUB 6.8 trillion was invested in the Moscow economy."
  • Leonid Tyagachyov
    Chairman of the Organising Committee of the International Municipal BRICS Forum, Adviser to the Mayor of Moscow
    "Today, all BRICS members are interested in strengthening international ties, including trade contacts. The International Municipal BRICS Forum makes a significant contribution to achieving this strategic objective. It is here, through a lively, open discussion, that a common atmosphere of trust is created."
  • Valentina Matvienko
    Chair of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation
    "The Forum is a large-scale and expected event in the sphere of international relations. It is held within the framework of an association that reflects the world's aspiration to form an equitable polycentric system of global governance against the background of the unsuitability of the unipolar model that restrains the world development. Over the years, the Forum has established itself as one of the strong and sought-after mechanisms for cooperation between countries on domestic and international agendas to exchange best practices and develop sustainable partnerships at the municipal level."

  • Sergey Lavrov
    Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation
    "I will say without exaggeration that today BRICS acts as an "agent" of the interests of the entire non-Western world. The decision to expand the association, made in Johannesburg in August 2023 when our leaders agreed to accept new participants, was a truly breakthrough achievement. From January 1, 2024, Egypt, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia gained their full rights as the members of our association. These countries have significant economic potential, play a significant role not only in their region, but also in the international arena and, most importantly, share the basic values of the BRICS that unite us, including the spirit of solidarity, equality, mutual respect, openness and consensus..."
