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

Long-Term and Affordable Capital for Investments: New Fundraising Opportunities
4 September 2019
10:00—11:30

Over the last five years, an exceptional business environment has been created in the Russian Far East. Investors are able to benefit from a wide range of financial and non-financial support measures through state development institutions. However, implementation of the projects is often hindered by a shortage of funding that cannot be covered by injections from the budget and loans from state banks alone. What sources of capital exist to fund investment projects in the Russian Far East? The foreign exchange rate of the Russian Rouble has stabilized, yet the cost of borrowing in Russia is consistently much higher than abroad. How can the cost of borrowing be reduced? Do projects in the Russian Far East and the Arctic require special arrangements? What are the project funding and fund-raising capabilities of state institutions? How eager are foreign banks and financial institutions to invest in the Russian Far East and the Arctic?
