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 Sanitary Shield. How to Prevent New Pandemics
3 September 2021
12:30—14:00
The COVID-19 pandemic is the first major biosecurity challenge of its type in human history. Rapidly engulfing virtually every country in the world, the pandemic revealed, in many cases, a lack of preparedness to respond swiftly to such threats. It has created a “new normal” and has provided an impetus for states to build their capacity to combat pandemics and conduct extensive scientific research. In order to combat new threats, new approaches to future biological challenges must be developed at national, regional and global levels. Based on its long-standing experience in infection prevention and control, Russia has begun to develop a so-called “sanitary shield” - a modern, pro-active system for forecasting, early detection and response to pandemics. Significant reforms to pandemic response systems are being made globally and regionally, including in APAC. What new elements must be part of a global and regional strategy to combat pandemics? Can new genetic, digital, and communication technologies help avoid new pandemics, and what are the social, economic and technological determinants of pandemic risk in Asia and the Pacific? What will ensure pandemic preparedness and response in Asia and the Pacific, and can a regional health shield be put in place? Has the role and involvement of business changed in the fight against pandemics?
