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 132 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 70 countries worldwide.

Access granted: participation by small and medium-sized businesses in procurement procedures of infrastructure monopolies and state-owned companies

Ensuring stable demand for the products and services of small- and medium-sized businesses is one of the key drivers for the Russian economy. The government has recently adopted a wide range of documents and measures that aim to facilitate access for small- and medium-sized businesses to government procurements. Starting in July 2015, it will become mandatory for state-owned companies to allocate quotas on orders for the goods and services of small- and medium-sized businesses. According to the business community and also according to the results of on-the-ground spot checks carried out by the Leaders Club, one of the success factors is the establishment of a single electronic trading platform. How should it function? How should the interests of all parties — both government customers and small- and medium-sized businesses — be respected? What barriers in general prevent small- and medium-sized businesses from getting wider access to orders by state-owned companies?
