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 159 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.

Productivity Leaders: Drawing on the Asian and European Experience to Support Regional Growth
5 September 2019
08:30—10:00

The Russian Federation is looking to become one of the five largest economies in the world and to achieve faster economic growth than the current world leaders while preserving macroeconomic stability. In order to do this, Russia will need to establish high-capacity manufacturing and agricultural sectors with a focus on exports. At the same time, it needs to be effectively integrated in the global economy. This will require it to participate in international production chains and adopt a systemic approach to raising efficiency and labour performance using modern technologies. In this session, partners from Europe and the Asia Pacific will exchange views on methods for securing steady growth in labour productivity in order to make the economy more competitive. They will share the results of implementing a culture of lean manufacturing, robotization, and digitalization. Other areas to be covered will include implementing tools to boost the business environment and raise a country’s export potential, reducing red tape, improving the management of human resources, and developing the employment system. Participants will examine national characteristics to consider whether Eastern or Western experience holds the key to achieving these goals. What main aspects and trends should be examined when attempting to identify the ideal combination? What should be done to identify and develop joint projects to impart knowledge and model solutions to essential non-commodity industries in the Far East? What resources are needed to do this?
