On 19 May 2022, Mr. Vijavat Isarabhakdi, Vice Minister for Foreign Affairs on behalf of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, attended the Dialogue of Foreign Ministers of the BRICS Group and Emerging Markets and Developing Countries (EMDCs) via videoconference upon the invitation of the government of the People’s Republic of China. The Dialogue was held under the theme “Increasing Role of EMDCs in Global Governance”.

On this occasion, the Vice Minister for Foreign Affairs shared Thailand's vision for balanced and sustainable recovery from COVID-19 through advancing the Bio-Circular-Green Economy Model (BCG Model) and proposed three approaches on how to foster equitable and balanced global development partnership: (1) leveraging South-South cooperation together with open-source agricultural technologies to transform food systems towards greater sustainability; (2) scaling up climate finance and transfer of low-carbon energy technologies to address vulnerabilities to oil prices; and (3) promoting inclusive multilateralism to steer the global governance towards greater equity and representation of developing countries across all decision-making fora that set global standards.

This Dialogue marked the first-ever meeting between Foreign Ministers of the BRICS Group (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and EMDCs. The meeting was hosted by H.E. Mr. Wang Yi, State Councilor and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China, during the 2022 BRICS chairmanship under the theme “Foster High-Quality BRICS Partnership, Usher in a New Era for Global Development”. Guest countries include Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Argentina, Egypt, Nigeria, Senegal, United Arab Emirates and Thailand. The invitation extended to Thailand to attend the said meeting was a recognition of Thailand’s constructive roles in the international community, especially its role in promoting South-South cooperation as well as the Host of APEC in 2022.
