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, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 76 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.

The Arctic: Territory of History, Culture, and Tourism
29 March 2017

The indigenous peoples and population of Russia’s North are the bearers of a distinctive material and spiritual culture, which also has significant potential in terms of cultural tourism. The Arctic is a territory of astounding accomplishments on the part of those who have discovered and developed it. Pioneers of Arctic exploration, seafarers, and missionaries have all left their mark on the history of opening up these northern lands, and Russia has played a leading role. The Arctic attracts scientists, researchers, and travellers from all over the world. It is essential that this heritage is preserved and protected. The region offers enormous opportunity for adventure and extreme tourism, as well as educational travel. With the right approach, these sectors could lay the groundwork for a successful tourism industry in Russia’s northern regions. Issues for discussion: • Preservation of the North’s cultural and historical heritage • Viable cultural projects in the Arctic • Areas and tools for developing the Arctic’s tourism industry
