Themed “networks innovation for high-quality development,” the 2023 BRICS Forum on Future Networks innovation provided a platform for BRICS countries and countries interested in potential collaborations with BRICS to explore cooperation in digital transformation, next-generation mobile communication, artificial intelligence, industrial internet and blockchain.
