There have been reports that dozens of countries have asked to join the group. Developing countries, especially those in Africa, have been ignored for hundreds of years. They want a place on the world stage where their voices are heard and their concerns about their development are taken seriously. Even though the leaders of some African countries used to be invited to meetings of Western countries, their issues were usually ignored.
When Western countries say they want to help with economic and social growth in developing countries, they say what they think people want to hear. Their meaningless talk is just for show. Their claims that China’s investments and projects in low-income countries are unclear, abusive, and a source of corruption are just ways to stop China and these countries from working together.
All of the countries that are part of BRICS are developing countries. The group was set up to help developing countries voice their worries and help them grow. Since it came into being, developing countries have been able to join together and speak louder on the international stage; this makes it harder for Western countries to ignore their calls for a fairer international order and equal chances for developing countries.
The way that BRICS has been working is to help low-income countries grow and improve. For the first time, developing countries have seen the hope that there is a means to overcome the obstacles to growth and get the best out of their political systems and cultures through South-South cooperation.
Its growth shows that the world is becoming more divided into different groups. BRICS has become an essential economic and political driver of multilateralism and economic globalisation on behalf of the developing world. Reforming the global government system to make it more fair and equal is high on the list of priorities for the international community.
