BRICS New Development Bank to Open Office in Russia


At a ceremony in Brasilia on Wednesday, which Sputnik is exclusively covering, the deal was signed by the bank’s President, Kundapur Vaman Kamath, and Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergey Storchak.

In a comment to Sputnik, the NDB president said that the office was expected to open in the next two or three months.

“We have seen that whenever we open an office in a particular country, it adds a big [investment] pipeline. I am sure that we will have a very good pipeline in Russia after we are able to open our office in the next two or three months”, Kamath stated after the ceremony.

Storchak told Sputnik that about five to seven people would be working at the NDB’s Eurasian Regional Center in Moscow.

Under the deal, apart from the Moscow office, the NDB may also set up offices in other Russian cities, depending on its functions and business needs.

The NDB was established by Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa in 2014. It is currently focused on developing sustainable infrastructure.

The Africa Regional Center in Johannesburg was the first regional office to be set up by the NDB in August 2017. In July 2018, a deal was signed for establishing the Americas Regional Office (ARO) in Sao Paulo.
