Main objectives of brics are:
Follow the foundry market evolution of the BRIC countries,Promote the technological information exchange among the countries of this economic block,Improve the professional development and education of the BRIC countries foundrymen,Making these countries getting closer to others to obtain the comparative advantages of these countries in the benefit of the whole foundry industry installed in the block.Think tanks from BRICS have a unique role to play in enhancing cooperation amongst the five nations. Through research and related efforts, think tanks can contribute to social and economic development in the BRICS. Coordinated development amongst the five can also be facilitated along with contributions to the ongoing recovery of the world economy through this form of cooperation.
Russias Ambassador to India Vadim Lukov described the BRICS as a wave of the future. This formula deserves to be included in Russias official position as well as those of the other BRICS countries.But for this new wave to cleanse and improve the world instead of just dissipating as it hits the shore or fragmenting as it crashes against the rocks, we must always keep in mind the dichotomy propelling the group forward BRICS is a global alliance of regional powers.Unfortunately, analysts conventionally regard the world as a collection of regions rather than as a whole. Even Chinas global influence is not keeping pace with its growing analytical potential. As for Russia, whatever globalist thinking can be found is rudimentary and left over from the Soviet era.The BRICS must learn to appreciate their global role, to turn into an active global force not only responding to issues as they arise but architects of the new world order.The global financial systems exhausted potential is one of the key issues of our time. A premeditated change in that system would harm its main beneficiaries who also define its condition.Therefore, the BRICS potential to make a difference as part of international organizations is limited to minor improvements. Any major steps will always be blocked because they risk cutting dominant countries incomes.This means the focus must be shifted to building our own financial institutions, albeit with limited authority at this stage. Life itself is prodding us in this decision for example, no longer using the U.S. dollar in international transactions requires that we hedge our currency risks. It is time we started preparing to create a different reserve currency to replace the dollar.But, while addressing specific issues we should not overlook the strategic goal of moving from a speculative to a production based economy with global reach.
It is also important to restore international law, currently obscured by the smoldering ruins of Libya. Although breached by NATOs previous aggressive campaigns against Yugoslavia and Iraq, it survived as long as there remained someone to defend it. In Libya, no one came forward, and eventually what little remained of it was no more.And the most disastrous consequence is that, without international law, the only way a state can defend itself from bomb attacks of the international community is by building nuclear weapons.
