Discussions and Media Coverage

This year’s summit will likely witness discussions on various topics such as trade, investment, infrastructure development, and technological advancements. Accredited journalists and media professionals will play a crucial role in generating awareness, promoting understanding, and fostering dialogue among different stakeholders. Media coverage of the 15th BRICS Summit is vital to ensuring that the public is informed and engaged with the event’s proceedings and outcomes.

As preparations for the 15th BRICS Summit continue, the media accreditation process serves as a reminder of the vital role the press plays in covering such events.
