FTFI proudly shares that we have facilitated and participated in the CivilBRICS Forum 2016 Trade Fair held at India Habitat Centre from 03rd-04th October, 2016. The fair was inaugurated by the Chairman of Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs Sh. Shashi Tharoor. We feel honoured to share that Mr Shashi Tharoor not only visited the stalls but also supported Fair Trade.
It was an event where different NGOs participated and showcased their work. Participating members are Calcutta Rescue, Eco Tassar, ILCA, Sasha, Unnayan Sansthan and Usha Exim. Many delegates visited the stall and members could also sale their products.
BRICS, a grouping of emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, has today emerged as a powerful global economic bloc. BRICS has evolved as a serious, competent and responsible grouping addressing issues and challenges with global and regional ramifications.
BRICS brings together five major emerging economies, comprising 43% of the world population, having 30% of the world GDP and 17% share in the world trade.
