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.

The future being born today: integration and infrastructure projects in Eurasia
3 June 2017
10:00

In line with the Development Strategy of the Russian Federation, academics, politicians, and entrepreneurs are currently examining various large-scale projects designed to effectively confront critical social, economic, and political challenges, and to neutralize geopolitical threats. The process of selecting projects like these is inevitably accompanied by a degree of uncertainty, and the scale involved requires a realistic evaluation of effort, expenditure, resources, and rate of return. As far as Russia is concerned, against a backdrop of increasing integration within the Eurasian space and the development of Asia-Pacific economic cooperation, such projects could include data centres and road infrastructure in the country’s Asian territories, driverless vehicles, automated production management systems, and much more. Does Russia have the leadership potential required to launch major infrastructure projects in the Eurasian region? What would the consequences of this shift in development strategy be for the country and for the Eurasian Union? How should infrastructure projects be selected and assessed in terms of their worth to the economy of the entire Eurasian region?
