In recent years, the Brics economies have been in a state of rapid growth. At the same time, some contradictions and problems in economic growth have been gradually exposed: Structural problems in economic growth are prominent, unstable factors in economic growth still exist, the distribution of the fruits of economic growth is not harmonious, and the economic growth pattern has yet to be fundamentally changed. Therefore, how to maintain the sustainability of economic growth of the emerging large countries represented by the Brics countries has become one of the most critical issues at present, and fundamentally, it is closely related to the quality of economic growth.
