Foreigners show interest in BRICS. They need to be able to cooperate with this organization
We have a plan to expand our cooperation [under BRICS, – Ed.] in five years. Our country has a huge potential — Simarpreet Singh, Director, JIS Group Educational Initiatives.
When talking to our non-profits, I started frequently insisting on them involving foreigners. We are currently reorienting our own tracks and domestic events to international audience — Tatyana Seliverstova, Deputy Head, Youth Projects and Programmes Directorate, Russian Youth Association.
We saw the response after two strategic sessions at BRICS youth school. <...> We even wanted to launch an ASI ambassador programme abroad, but we haven’t had the time yet – we still need to develop the Russian agenda. <…> After these events, five foreigners came for a master’s programme in Russia. <…> If we see such a demand from BRICS citizens for studying in Russia and for being physically involved in the Russian Agenda, we need to make sure they are comfortable in Russia and can be employed here. What if they start a business here? The Agency will be happy to get involved — Vasily Balashov, Project Manager, Centre for Youth Initiatives, Agency for Strategic Initiatives.
Europe is showing a fairly high interest in BRICS. First of all, because BRICS has a certain market potential — Gabriella Marcelja, Chief Executive Officer, Sirius Global - Academic Diplomacy 4.0.
