The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Russky Island

The experiences gained and developments made during preparations for the APEC summit will be taken into account in the further development of Russky Island. The main focus of the project is the Saperny Peninsula, which is currently home to all of the island’s major infrastructure: a bridge was built to this Peninsula in 2012 and this is also where Far Eastern Federal University and Primorsky Aquarium are located. The project’s primary goal is creating a new ‘territorial brand’ for Primorye.

The plan is to make Russky Island attractive not just to FEFU students, but also to Vladivostok residents and tourists. To this end, a sports cluster will be built right next to the university. It will include a hockey rink and facilities for football, basketball, tennis, track and field, and other types of sports. The cluster is intended to attract sports enthusiasts and regular urban dwellers thanks to its versatility and readiness to host public events of any sort. A starting point will be constructed for bike routes that will run past all of the island’s major locations. Local coastal areas, starting with the Paris Bay, will be developed with the intent of fostering tourism. The Paris Bay is slated to be the location of a waterpark, hotels, and a children’s camp.

The project will largely be focused on infrastructure development, above all building new roads. In late April, Vladimir Putin approved the construction of a second bridge to Russky Island, which will connect Vladivostok to Elena Island through the Eastern Bosphorus strait. This new route will serve as the final link in the Vladivostok Ring Road. New infrastructure is planned for the area around FEFU as well: a pedestrian viewing bridge near University Promenade and improvements to the thoroughfare itself. FEFU will turn into a progressive research centre with a federal-level science city, which will increase the quality of the education it provides, as well as living conditions for the students. Furthermore, a new district will be built on over 300 hectares of the southern part of the island, featuring a major DOM.RF project — an integrated residential complex. All of these transformations will be funded through private investments.
