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.

Open Dialogue with the Regions on the Development of Traditional Art Industries. Traditional Art Industries: Law-making, Enforcement, and Support
2 September 2021
Creative industries include heritage, culture, art, IT, digital, media, fashion, architecture, and creative R&D. Such cross-sectoral approach is predicated on new types of socioeconomic interaction, contributes to the success of territories and states, and is becoming one of the most important focuses for the development of the economy and society. In addition, the local aspect and one’s location play an important role in the development of creative industries. Each region of the Russian Federation is the custodian of a part of Russia’s unique cultural code. This code is formed from a variety of local traditions, including folk arts and crafts as well as traditional art industries created on their basis. These industries are currently viewed as an important component of creative industries – the most promising and rapidly developing sector of the economy in the modern world. And the preservation and development of folk arts and crafts and their introduction into creative industries specifically depend on the proactive position of the regions. How can we lay the groundwork for the creation of unique regional brands and modern products based on folk arts and crafts in the Far Eastern, Siberian, and Ural Federal Districts?
