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 160 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.

SPIEF 2018 day zero opens with Russia–Australia business breakfast

Australian entrepreneurs and academics took part in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on 23 May 2018. The initiative for the SPIEF day zero event came from the Roscongress Foundation’s Australian partners the Australian Davos Connection (ADC) Forum and the Australia–Russia Dialogue Forum (ARD).

At the Russia–Australia business breakfast jointly hosted with the ARD, participants discussed prospects for bilateral cooperation in the fields of energy, natural resources, agriculture, the economy, science and technology, education, and culture.

Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation, notes that an established dialogue between the business communities of Russia and Australia will contribute to the development of the economic ties. “Regular Russian-Australian business meetings indicate a strong mutual interest. Such contacts allow us to find points of mutual interest, identify priority areas of interaction and build close business relationships, implement joint projects and attract new partners.”

Business communication will continue with the visit of the Russian business delegation to Australia in June 2018 for the Australian Leadership Retreat, the annual meeting of ADC Forum. Russian entrepreneurs will take part in the Australia Leadership Retreat, along with business headliners and officials from Australia and a number of other countries including within the Asia-Pacific region.

"We welcome the chance to develop the relationship with Roscongress which we began last year.  Australia's economy is open and efficient.  We are in our 27th year of continuous economic growth.  We have transformed from a resources-based to a diversified economy, and I am pleased that ADC and Roscongress are collaborating to share some of these insights at this year's Forum and develop business-to-business links," said Anton Roux, Chief Executive Officer of the ADC Forum.

To recap, at SPIEF 2017 the Roscongress Foundation with the support of the Russian Embassy in Australia and Australian Embassy in Russia entered into an agreement with the Australia Russia Dialogue (ARD) with the objective to promote interaction between Russian and Australian businesses. Cooperation Agreement between the Roscongress Foundation and the ADC Forum was signed in September 2017 at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok.
