Cape Town , Pretoria (ANN)-The latest report indicates that 36 countries have applied to join the BRICS alliance this year in 2024. All 36 countries have formally submitted their expression of interest to join the bloc, confirmed South Africa’s Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor. All the three dozen nations that have applied to be a part of the grouping are developing economies.accoding to published a report Watcher.guru.

The recent developments indicate that developing countries look at the BRICS alliance as a promising bloc that can change their economies for good. BRICS is looking at ways to end dependency on the US dollar and promote local currencies for cross-border transactions. However, Pandor did not mention the names of the 36 countries that have expressed their interest in joining the BRICS alliance.

The prospect of using local currencies instead of the US dollar is enticing to developing countries. The majority of them want to strengthen their native economies and the route to achieve it is through giving prominence to their respective local currencies.

Moreover, the BRICS expansion will not be an easy task as the existing members decide about the induction. All countries have to meet a set of criteria to be allowed entry into the alliance. Among the 36 countries, only a few might receive invitations to join the BRICS alliance in 2024.

BRICS thoroughly evaluates what these 36 countries can bring to the table for the alliance to expand further. Either monetarily or politically, these countries need to offer something new to be a part of the grouping.
