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.

Russia–Africa: a structural approach to cooperation in the new economic reality
1 June 2017

African nations are today playing an increasingly active role in international politics and the world economy, becoming directly involved in decision-making on key issues on the global agenda for the UN, and in other multilateral fora. The Soviet Union made a significant contribution to the social and economic development of African countries, building major industrial and infrastructure facilities and assisting in the creation of national education and healthcare systems. In the 1990s, however, Russian—African relations slowed to a near halt. At the present time, trade between the Russian Federation and Africa stands at a maximum of USD 12 billion. But the African continent is a highly promising market for Russian industry, and an important supplier of much-needed raw materials. The key question today is how to set up business partnerships between the Russian Federation and African countries; this would not be possible without substantial support from the Russian Government. What steps must be taken in order to give this bilateral economic partnership fresh impetus?
