The Common Approach to Tourism Development and Transport Safety in the BRICS Countries
This practice would increase the level of comfort and safety on rail and road transport in the bloc.

In 2023, the Russia Chapter suggested that it is better to simplify and systemise administrative and regulatory procedures and requirements within the BRICS.

Russia Chapter developed and shared a questionnaire, taking into account the proposals and interests of business representatives - tour operators, insurance companies, rail and bus transport operators, manufacturers of equipment and solutions in fire safety, etc.

The received information will become the basis for the preparation of the BRICS WBA proposals on the common approach to transport and tourism safety in the BRICS.
