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.

Introducing Russia to Africa
23 October 2019
12:00—13:00

African economies are currently striving to achieve inclusive growth and sustainable development — efforts which must be supported by constant technological progress. Today’s global technological landscape is becoming increasingly digital, opening up new opportunities to overcome challenges facing Africa and the entire world, such as famine, inequality, illiteracy, and disease. Digital technologies are changing approaches to communication, leading to more effective governance and increased access to government services. Technology is bringing together solutions across a range of sectors to form comprehensive projects, while creating a single value-added growth chain and an integral mechanism for strengthening human capital — something which is vital for young African economies. What technological solutions could help countries in Africa to accelerate growth in prosperity? What should be the starting point for implementing information and communications technology? Which areas would give the greatest rewards? What needs to be done to train personnel for this new technological wave?
