The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

Russia–ASEAN
5 September 2019

The Third Russia—ASEAN Summit took place in November 2018 in Singapore, and saw Russia and ASEAN develop relations to the point of forming a strategic partnership, which was enshrined in the signing of a statement. However, there currently exist a number of barriers hindering the development of economic cooperation, including insufficient integration in the Asia Pacific’s logistics network, lack of direct flights between large Russian cities and ASEAN countries, and low levels of awareness of each other’s business environment. Nevertheless, trade, economic, and investment cooperation can be increased through implementing joint economic projects which encompass priority development areas in the Far East and Russia overall, collaborating in building infrastructure, working together in high-tech and innovation, and bolstering economic security. What will be the new focal points for cooperation in terms of trade and investment between Russia and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations? What prospects for cooperation does the digital economy hold, specifically for integrating projects to create a network of smart cities? Integrating investment flow instruments and mechanisms from ASEAN into Russia: how can we intensify the process of investment cooperation?
