BRICS development bank

The sixth summit of the BRICS at Fortaleza, Brazil, concluded with commendable  results for India. After lengthy negotiations, the bloc finally announced the plan to set up a $100bn development bank as a step to create a stronger presence globally. The bank will have a capital of $50bn, contributed equally by the five nations. Also, an emergency reserve fund of $100bn is to be made with major contribution from China (41 per cent), whereas, India, Russia and Brazil will pool in $18bn each and South Africa, the rest.

What will go down in the annals of India’s history is that the first president of this development bank will be an Indian. This comes at a very apt time with Modi government just stepping at the helm. Not only will it provide infrastructure assistance and funding in case of revenue deficiencies, but also give India a strategic importance across the globe. With headquarters in Shanghai, this miniature IMF model will start lending by 2016.
