During the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, the Roscongress Foundation and the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs (Rosmolodezh) signed an agreement for cooperation in implementing state youth policy.
The document provides for cooperation on a number of issues, including the determination of primary areas of focus and priorities in youth policy for 2018–2024. Areas of cooperation include the creation and evaluation of mechanisms for systematically including young people in the development of strategies for social and economic development, and the creation of approaches for the development of student professional clubs aimed at improving professional skills and other forms of professional expertise among young people.
The Roscongress Foundation and Rosmolodezh look to work together to facilitate the participation of young people in the development of promising ideas and projects to be implemented and to continue organizing joint events.
“Signing this agreement is extremely important to us because partners like Roscongress, who organize all of the largest economic forums in our country, carry out serious social work as well. A large number of young entrepreneurs take part in these economic forums. This is an opportunity for them to socialize with a wide range of politicians and businessmen, which in turn seriously increases their competitive capabilities. By order of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, Roscongress and Rosmolodezh organize youth venues at all major Russian economic forums together with our partners. The joint agreement will undoubtedly lend further momentum to our interaction”, commented the head of Rosmolodezh, Alexander Bugayev, on signing the document.
We would like to remind you that the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum is a unique event in the world of business and economics. SPIEF has been held since 1997, and since 2006, it has been held under the auspices of the President of the Russian Federation, who has also attended each event. The Forum has become a leading global platform for members of the business community to meet and discuss the key economic issues facing Russia, emerging markets, and the world as a whole.
