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.

The coming industrial revolution: the impact on competitiveness and employment
16 June 2016

The Fourth Industrial Revolution — driven by the convergence of digitalization, robotics, and additive manufacturing — is promising to herald a new era in production efficiencies and productivity. This is expected to not only result in reduced costs and enhanced product development, but eventually it could fundamentally alter the role of labour in the entire global economy. The resulting disruptions are not without risk and, if not properly managed, could spur greater income inequality as well as the disenfranchisement of large sectors of the workforce. How can such potential negative effects be addressed and what role can governments play to ensure smooth transitions in labour markets? How should businesses adjust their strategies, if at all, to take into account the potential social impact resulting from Industry 4.0?
