From January 17 to 19, 2024, the Moscow City Government delegation participated in the Smart Cities India Expo in New Delhi.
Sergey Cheremin, Minister of the Moscow City Government, addressed the exhibition's opening and engaged in various sessions in the business program.
He emphasized the longstanding cooperation between India and Russia and highlighted potential areas for bilateral partnership.
"We are united by the common goal of building the most modern infrastructure, creating a safe and comfortable urban environment. One of the most promising areas of our cooperation is undoubtedly information technology and the digital economy. India and Russia are striving to become leaders in this field, and joining forces can create a synergistic effect," Cheremin stated.

Also, the BRICS Pay system was launched last year to rival the Western SWIFT payment system and establish BRICS-based alternatives.
