  • All three of its members are democracies and have large economies from three different continents.
  • These three countries are also facing similar challenges.
  • It is based on the spirit of South-South Cooperation (SSC). Cooperation between developing countries is called ‘South-South Cooperation’.

Key Initiatives under IBSA –

  • 14 Joint Working Groups have been set up for cooperation in the areas of transport, health, education, defence, science and technology etc.
  • The IBSA business platform was launched in the year 2005. The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) coordinates India’s participation in this.
  • South-South Cooperation (SSC) refers to the exchange and sharing of ideas in solving development issues between countries located in the Global South.
  • The division of “North” and “South” is also used to refer to the social, economic and political differences that exist between developed countries (North) and developing countries (South).
  • However, a country is not defined as North or South by location. Rather it is defined by economic factors and the quality of life of their population.
