The BRICS Summer Program by the Center for BRICS Studies of Fudan University aims to build a platform of friendship and consensus for young students from BRICS countries. This program provides the young generation of BRICS countries with a chance to have a better understanding of China’s social-cultural, political and economic development, BRICS cooperation and changes in global governance, promoting mutual communication and consolidating the popular foundation for BRICS cooperation.
