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 Transport Opportunities
29 March 2017
13:30

Transport is a key factor in ensuring the competitiveness of enterprises in the Arctic zone; furthermore, it fulfils a social function in helping to ensure a good standard of living for the population. The direction of the macroregion’s development and the Arctic’s contribution to the creation of a new model for stimulating economic growth in Russia are both dependent on the extent to which its transport infrastructure can be developed and new technologies introduced. Transport is not only a sector which serves industry, but is also one of the major consumers of innovation in the Arctic zone. The Northern Sea Route and the waters of the Arctic seas and of Russia’s navigable rivers that flow into them, together with interconnecting railways, provide cargo owners with reliable delivery routes thanks to the development of intermodal hubs. The Russian Government is taking steps to ensure a high degree of transport accessibility. In the Arctic region, priority is given to transport projects which operate on the basis of public—private partnership. Issues for discussion: • Strategic areas for developing transport infrastructure and logistics in the Arctic • Ensuring transport accessibility in Arctic regions, serving both passengers and freight • International collaboration to ensure safe navigation in the Arctic
