Congress welcomes Goa as venue for BRICS meet

Panaji, Aug 17 (IANS) The Congress here has welcomed the selection of Goa as a venue for the high profile BRICS meet later this year, state party president Luizinho Faleiro said on Wednesday.

“Anything happening in Goa I am proud of it. I welcome it. As long as it does not affect Goa and Goans. See, Goa is not only a national destination. Goa is an international destination and has already hosted heads of Commonwealth countries. We had Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) over here,” Faleiro said.

The CHOGM meet was held in Goa in 1983 and was hosted by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

The two-day BRICS meet, where heads of state or government from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa are expected to discuss global issues as well as concerns related to the participating developing countries, is scheduled to be held in Goa in mid-October this year.
