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.

Ensuring a Sustainable Framework to Attract and Protect Investment: Drawing on Russia and Singapore’s Experience in the Global and Regional Context
6 September 2019
12:00—13:30

2018 marked the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Russia and Singapore. Today, relations have reached the next level: commercial and business exchanges in various economic sectors are gradually increasing, while the level of mutual investment is growing and several high-tech projects in transport, energy, and infrastructure are under way. To fulfil the potential for cooperation and attract investors in Russia and Singapore, there need to be mutual and reliable guarantees regarding investment protection. Negotiations on the establishment of a free trade zone between Singapore and the Eurasian Economic Union are under way, while cooperation in the field of alternative dispute resolution between Russian and Singaporean jurisdictions has been stepped up and preferential regimes in the Russian Far East are being developed in order to attract investment. What do investors in Russia and Singapore need to ensure they have a beneficial investment framework? What particular investment protection mechanisms should be implemented? What other elements are crucial to the success of future relations between Russia and Singapore?
