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.

Bringing the Far East Closer: Approaches to Reducing Transport Costs
2 September 2021
It will not be possible to achieve accelerated development in the Far East unless economic ties between regions and established centres of growth are strengthened and expanded. In other words, an agglomeration effect needs to be achieved on a national scale, and a developed transport infrastructure is a prerequisite to this process. What’s more, transport infrastructure needs to develop at a more rapid rate than other sectors. This should ultimately translate into reduced transport costs for all business entities, and to these ends, efforts need to focus on three areas: expanding and overhauling traditional forms of transport in the Far East – rail, road and air; essential infrastructure for maritime multimodal transportation needs to be put in place (particularly Northern Sea Route) including river transport and inland waterway infrastructure; and driverless transport. What are the current requirements with regards infrastructure? What can be done to support the flow of imports and exports and do tariffs need to be put in place pertaining to the access to infrastructure? What potential does multimodal transportation hold for the economy of the Russian Far East? What prospects exist for inland waterways and driverless transport in the Far East?
