About Us


Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) are leading emerging economies and political powers at the regional and international level. The acronym was originally coined in 2001 to highlight the exceptional role of important emerging economies and the then acronym included Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) only. It was pointed out that high growth rates, economic potential and demographic development were going to put BRIC further in a lead position and it was argued that their increased relevance should also be reflected in their incorporation to the G7(O’Neill 2011). The four countries themselves started to meet as a group in 2006 and it was only in 2010 that South Africa was invited to join the group, which was then referred to as BRICS.

The BRICS brings together five of the largest developing countries of the world, representing 41% of the global population, 24% of the global GDP and 16% of the global trade .The chairmanship of the forum is rotated annually among the members, in accordance with the acronym B-R-I-C-S.


Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa have emerged as ‘the protagonists” in the world economy significantly and rapidly.

The BRICS Chamber of Commerce and Industry is a parent organization which promotes commerce and industry in the BRICS nations. The Chamber, founded in 2012 with the efforts of eminent professionals and entrepreneur, is a not-for-profit and non-governmental organization. BRICS CCI is a registered body under Societies Registration Act 1860, Government of India and empanelled with NITI Aayog (highest policy-making body of Govt of India) and recognized by United Nations.

The objective of BRICS CCI is to create an enabling support system especially for the MSME segment of businesses, young entrepreneurs, women entrepreneurs, and Start-Ups from across all geographies. While the BRICS nations will remain at the centre of all activities, the chamber has taken in its credo to reach out to and enable young entrepreneurs from other friendly nations too. It proposes to be the ‘voice’ of entrepreneurs and helps them cultivate their business with due regard to social, cultural and security issues.

Yajurveda (XXXVI17) prays for the peace in the cosmos and we at BRICS and Beyond “ have the same wish for all our stakeholders in the spirit of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam “which signifies that the world is one family.
Our ancient Rishis pray to GOD that “May there be peace in the celestial region, peace on earth, peace in water and ultimately peace within us.“ for Peace is a great harbinger for progress, cooperation and success…Read more

Our vision at the BRICS Chamber of Commerce and Industry is to be the ‘voice ‘of young entrepreneurs.

Dr. B.B.L. Madhukar | Director General, BRICS CCI

Former CMD-MMTC Ltd, Chairman FORE School of Management.

BRICS Chamber of Commerce & Industry is a forum that addresses interface opportunities particularly in the context of the association of the five powerhouse nations, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The context around which the member countries gravitate are high growth rates, huge economic potential and productive demographic developments. Notwithstanding the historical punctuation caused by Covid 19, the pursuit of our chamber remains steadfast as ever.  I particularly look at BRICS CCI’s two major constituencies, entrepreneurs and SMEs, as very relevant context in our country. Therefore, our endeavour to create an enabling ecosystem for them is also equally pertinent.To attain these goals through a non-profit and non-government organization such as ours is as challenging as it is stimulating.
I am sure that BRICS CCI has a very important role to play in times ahead and Ipledge myself as a humble resource for the organization. I thank Dr B B L Madhukar for showing me the way.
