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.

Logistics is the ‘New Oil’ of the Russian Economy: International Transport Corridors as the Main Driver of Growth
3 September 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic and recent incidents in the Suez Canal have led to a rethink of traditional routes for transporting goods from Asia-Pacific countries to Europe and back. Even with long-term contracts for transportation through the Suez Canal, cargo owners have been forced to diversify flows and look for alternative routes, including through the Far East of Russia. In addition, deep sea freight rates have increased by almost eight times over the past year, which provides the Russian Far East with additional competitive advantages as a new logistics hub. In 2021, freight traffic through the Far East increased by 20% compared with 2020. It is clear that with the growing volume of traffic through Russia, the Northern Sea Route also has an even greater chance of becoming a full-fledged alternative to the Suez Canal. How significant are infrastructural insufficiencies on routes through Russian territory from the Asia-Pacific region to Europe now? What is the future of international transport corridors and how should we coordinate the development of their infrastructure and their operation while taking into account the interests of all member states? Will the NSR be able to ease the burden on routes through the Russian Far East despite the limited infrastructure? What projects are being implemented today to attract container traffic to the NSR? What measures to support railway operators and what technological solutions will optimize cargo clearance procedures and reduce delivery time from the Asia-Pacific countries to Europe and via routes through Russia?
