The BRICS New Development Bank will give a priority to projects aimed at developing the renewable energy sources, Vice President of the Bank Leslie Maasdorp told TASS on Wednesday at the Boao Forum for Asia.

"The mandate of the Bank as set out in our Articles of Agreement is to be an institution that focuses on accelerating the pace towards the transition to the ‘green economy’," the banker said.
