World shifting from west to east, says BRICS forum president
With Western economies in decline, the role of BRICS on the global stage is increasing every day. Many countries, even members of OPEC and OECD, are now interested in the stability that BRICS has to offer, believes president of the BRICS International Forum, Purnima Anand, who spoke exclusively to RT this week.
She said that “this is the time when power is shifting from West to East,” adding that “we don’t want to develop another model of the Western economy and democratic process; we want a new model where all the members have equal rights and opportunities to grow together.”
Talking about Western sanctions against Russia, she said that the restrictions are creating an opportunity for BRICS economies.
“This is very high time for BRICS partners and alliances to create good structure … to understand where we are moving, what cooperation is required, and what new dimensions are developing by the participation of new members.”
