The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Arctic Business Forum
30 March 2017

Although a large number of support measures have been introduced by the government, businesses are not sufficiently aware of what is available. There is a pressing need to integrate strategies, programmes, and proposals for developing the Arctic, specific regions, industries, small and medium-sized businesses in the Arctic, and regional authorities. There is also a need to establish infrastructure and an improved energy network for use by participating and new commercial ventures. The Arctic is an attractive region for investment, not only for large enterprises, but also for small and medium-sized businesses. The projects being implemented in the Russian Arctic by Russian companies and overseas partners offer a pathway to removing barriers which would otherwise impede constructive cooperation with government bodies at various levels. This highlights the importance of collaboration between the Business Council of the State Commission for Arctic Development — the business arm of the advisory body, which provides the Commission with a consolidated viewpoint from the business community on current issues affecting the socioeconomic development of the Russian Arctic in order to establish a favourable investment climate — and the Arctic Economic Council, which aims to build a model of international cooperation that will secure a central role for business in the sustainable development of the Arctic. Issues for discussion: • Pooling efforts to promote the economic development of the Arctic: the optimal format for cooperation between government and business on specific projects • International collaboration to implement Arctic investment projects — identifying the best models for cooperation • Involvement in the Arctic projects of small and medium-sized enterprises
