On September 9, 2022, the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Foreign Trade Academy of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, held an international research to practice conference "Ways to attract investment in the development of the infrastructure potential of the regions of the BRICS+ countries"
Absentia-praesentia format of the conference made it possible to bring together not only cities, countries, but also different continents. The conference was attended by representatives of all BRICS countries (the Federative Republic of Brazil, the Russian Federation, Republic of India, People's Republic of China, Republic of South Africa), as well as Argentina.
This format of communication has already become traditional: since 2020, the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Foreign Trade Academy of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation has been a regional platform for the international forum, within which numerous events are held with the participation of foreign partners from BRICS countries and the countries applying for participation in this international organization.
BRICS today is actively promoting development of business cooperation in the economic sphere. The work of the research to practice conference held in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky was also built in this context. Experts from BRICS+ countries shared their experience in strengthening positions aimed at building investment potential at the regional level, which is one of the most important factors in economic growth.

The conference resulted in initiatives supported by the participants to conclude cooperation agreements between the municipalities of the BRICS+ countries, as well as a proposal to enhance the participation of students from Kamchatka universities in international research projects and competitions aimed at developing the necessary professional competencies.
