MOSCOW, July 3. /TASS/. It is possible to ease vise regime for business trips to BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), head of Russia’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry Sergey Katyrin said on Friday.
"Easing the visa regime is a possibility for business to travel without obstacles, not for the sake of ‘just travelling’ but rather for ‘making business trips to countries’," Katyrin, who also serves as chairman of the Russian part of BRICS Business Council, said.
He noted that it is too early to talk about introducing a visa-free regime between BRICS countries, but it is not out of reach to make an agreement on easing visa regime for business trips between the countries.
BRICS is an association of five major emerging economies - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - founded in June 2006. The first official summit took place in June 2009 in Russia’s Yekaterinburg. Since then, meetings at the highest level are held annually in member-countries. The last summit took place in Brazil. On April 1, Russia accepted BRICS presidency.
