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 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Digital Future of Transport Corridors Running through the Far East: International Experience and Russian Realities
5 September 2019

The geographical location of the Far East offers it an undeniable competitive advantage: it can attract a significant amount of cargo volume from the Asia-Pacific countries to Europe via the Suez Canal to switch to Russian routes. Despite the considerable growth of transit traffic on the Russian Railways in recent years (just in 2018 transit grew by 25% and amounted to TEU 550,000), this cargo flow along the Trans-Siberian Railway remains insignificant compared to the volumes transported via the Suez Canal. The technological landscape that is currently being created, will help on-going projects in the development of physical infrastructure to ensure reliable and high-quality services. In turn, this will help provide stable traffic volumes across Russia. Global companies have already put forward plans to make all procedures between players on the transport market electronic. Russia has made it a priority for its own companies to be integrated into this process and implement their digital transformation projects, especially considering the Presidential Executive Order to increase the freight traffic transit along the Russian routes fourfold by 2024. How will global technological transformations change the role of transportation routes through the Far East? How can state and business join efforts to accelerate the implementation of electronic document flow along the freight route? What digitalization programmes need to be implemented by both regulatory authorities and business? How could international digitalization practices in transport be applied in Russia?
