The Finance Ministry and New Development Bank (NDB) will organise a seminar on the importance of ‘Social Infrastructure Financing and use of Digital Technologies’.
The seminar, as part of the economic and financial cooperation agenda under the Indian BRICS chairship 2021, is being organised in the run-up to the 13th BRICS Summit to be held later this year.
The Covid-19 pandemic has reinforced the importance of investing in social infrastructure and underpinned the importance of leveraging digital technologies in advanced and emerging economies, the Finance Ministry said in a statement.
“The challenges faced, are common to all, especially to the BRICS nations.
There is a great potential in building sustainable mechanism to chart the way forward and share the common benefits associated with social, economic and digital development,” it said.
