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.

Far East Focus for Russian Exports
2 September 2016
12:45

In a world characterized by turbulence on the financial and commodity markets, the overall direction in which Russian business is seeking new markets is shifting towards the most promising area — a region featuring a gigantic scale, where demand is growing at an incredible rate. Given the specific nature of the economic situation in the Russian Far East, focusing on exports to Asia-Pacific countries may be the most promising development model for the region. While natural resources currently account for the majority of its exports today, the region should focus on processing, and become one predominantly selling value-added products and services tomorrow. While the favourable investment climate created in Advanced Special Economic Zones and free ports undoubtedly contributes to achieving this objective, supporting and fostering exports will still remain an integral part of the Russian Government’s policy in the Far East. This policy consists of a range of measures, including trade promotion, risk insurance, export lending and transport infrastructure development. What can the Russian Far East offer to Asia-Pacific countries, and what tools may prove most effective for unlocking the export potential of this macro-region?
