The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Housing, Utilities, and the Urban Environment: Effective Investments
4 September 2019
12:30—14:00

As Russia implements its national projects, the government will provide substantial support for the development of urban infrastructure. The problems facing Russian cities, particularly in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, can only be solved with funding from the federal budget. The practice of raising private capital for urban improvement projects and modernizing housing and utility infrastructure has gained popularity among businesses in recent years. More than 2,500 concession agreements have been signed in Russia to modernize utility facilities. Businesses have also become more involved in upgrading parks, squares, embankments, and even courtyards. Over the past two years, entrepreneurs have invested nearly RUB 2 billion in such sites as part of a project to improve the urban environment. However, these are still isolated examples. Systemically raising private investment is one of the key goals that will be addressed through Russia’s national projects. Only the joint efforts of government and business will make it possible to take an effective and comprehensive approach to developing the urban environment and infrastructure. How profitable could investment in the urban environment and public utilities be? How can we create mechanisms and conditions to further motivate investors to invest in urban infrastructure? Should investors be guided by people’s preferences when implementing their projects?
