The 1st BRICS+ Digital Competition Forum took place in Rio de Janeiro, on 24 and 25 November 2022. The Forum brought together the BRICS Digital Working Group, which held its 6th meeting, while opening an opportunity of participation for competition authorities of BRICS candidate countries (Argentina, Egypt, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan) and for local academics and civil society members (such as CTS-FGV, IDEC, Data Privacy Brasil, Derechos Digitales).
The event was exclusive to the invited authorities and academics, with the exception of the final panel – the launch of the “Digital Ecosystems: a Brazilian perspective” book – which was livestreamed through Zoom. You can dowload the book for free (in Portuguese) here.
The Organizing Team prepared a video with statements from authorities and academics present at the event, commenting on the Forum’s importance and achievements.
