  The BRICS countries have all realized and are highly aware that one of the most important levers to grasp this round of technological revolution and industrial transformation is the digital economy. In terms of the digital economy, its current digital trade standards and norms are not uniform. In addition, in the development of the digital economy, the flow of numbers, as one of the most important factor resources, is severely restricted. Therefore, if these obstacles are to be further cooperated, these obstacles must be broken.

I think that if there is a breakthrough in this area, especially if the BRICS countries take the lead in formulating standards and norms in terms of digital economy and trade, international standards and norms will effectively promote the development of the digital economy and thus the BRICS. The huge development of the digital economy industry in the five countries.
