President Dilma Rousseff is participating in the activities of the “Second Summit Russia-Africa – Economic and Humanitarian Forum” in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The President of the NDB will be a speaker in the Plenary Session of the Forum, addressing an audience of Heads of State and other authorities of African countries.
The President is scheduled to have bilateral meetings with two Heads of States that are founding members of the NDB, namely Russia and South Africa.
The purpose of both bilateral meetings is to ascertain the views of both member countries regarding the role of the NDB in the upcoming BRICS Summit, which will be hosted by South Africa in August, 2023.
Any speculations concerning the discussion of new operations of the NDB in Russia are unfounded.
