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.

Legislative Support for Arctic Development
5 September 2019
11:30—13:00

The Russian Arctic comprises 9 regions that generate over 10% of Russian GDP and 20% of national exports. Its growth has become a geo-strategic priority. A special system for managing the development of the Russian Arctic was created in 2019. It has two goals: to ensure that the enormous economic potential of the area is utilized, and to improve the quality of life of the 2.5 million people who live there to at least the average national level. A new strategy for the development of the Arctic to 2035 is currently being prepared. Which legislative gaps must be filled in order to expedite economic and social development in the Russian Arctic? The new Arctic investor preference regime: what is the current regulation stage? What is required to achieve steady growth in the number of small and medium-sized enterprises? What can be done to accelerate the implementation of innovations that the Arctic needs? Which promising projects can help promote advanced regional development? Which international geo economic initiatives are bringing about positive change in the Arctic?
