The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, 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, and 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 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 159 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

The Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS) is a joint initiative of Ministry of Energy and Industry of the United Arab Emirates and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

The inaugural summit was held in March 2017 in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, and hosted over 3,000 delegates from more than 40 countries to deliberate on the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and embrace its technologies to develop stronger and more sustainable industries, communities, businesses, and economies.

The second edition of GMIS will expand to highlight the role of nature-inspired technologies, its impact on manufacturing, its benefits to communities, and its role in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. Discussions will take place through interactive debates, sessions, and workshops.
