Slightly off-topic, but when states that "according to the , the is predicted to have the highest GDP growth rate of countries", don't believe him.
Go and look at the IMF's World Economic Outlook (April 2024).
It shows that UK growth is 6th out of 7 in 2024 and joint 3rd out of 7 in 2025.

As usual, enforcing capitalists' debts over by forcing over a stricken country, while (2 years on) promised funds by international banks remain stunts.

'..why there has been a delay, Mr Ye said that the amount pledged was for reconstruction.. "..the new climate risk profile and the possibility that these areas may be flooded again,”...'

vs
GDP Growth Forecasts for 2024
has released its real gross domestic product (GDP) growth forecasts for 2024, and while global growth is projected to stay steady at 3.2%, various major nations are seeing declining forecasts.

It's just a prediction, though.
IMF promotes propaganda whenever it can.
For the last two years it has been revising its forecasts, especially for every 2-3 months, so presumably BRICS numbers here will be much higher at the end.
