The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Traditional Life Support Systems of Indigenous Peoples in Modern Economic Conditions. Practice, Prospects, Law
6 September 2022
17:30—20:00
The traditional life support systems of Indigenous peoples continue to play a vital role in their socioeconomic development. The identity of ethnic groups, their special legal status, and the government’s objectives of creating conditions for their preservation and well-rounded development require a rethinking of legal, economic, and infrastructural approaches and the development of new approaches to adapt the traditional types of economic activities of Indigenous peoples to the modern economic realities.

In the last two decades, legislative activity at the regional and federal levels has largely focused on social protection, which is certainly necessary, but it is just as important to create legal conditions to unleash the potential of the traditional economy of Indigenous peoples by intensifying production processes and the output of craft products with high added value.
Holding an in-depth discussion of these issues with the participation of representatives of Indigenous peoples, the federal and regional authorities, the scientific and expert community, and socially responsible business will help generate proposals to improve federal and regional legislation, regulate economic conditions for the conservation and development of the traditional use of natural resources by Indigenous peoples, and ultimately implement the goals of the Development Strategy for the Arctic Zone of the Russian Federation and Ensuring National Security for the Period until 2035 and the Strategy for the State National Policy of the Russian Federation for the Period until 2025.

Key themes of the roundtable:
● Improving legislation:
a) on the recognition of communities of Indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia, and the Far East as agricultural producers and small and medium-sized businesses
b) on state subsidies for reindeer breeding in the tundra, taiga, and mountains, hunting, fishing, and hunting for sea animals
c) approval of professional standards in the traditional sectors of the economic activities of Indigenous peoples
d) amendments to the Federal Laws “On Hunting and the Conservation of Hunting Resources and Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation”, “On Fishing and the Conservation of Aquatic Biological Resources”, “On the General Principles of Organizing Communities of Indigenous Peoples of the North, Siberia, and Far East of the Russian Federation”, the Forest Code, and the Tax Code in terms of improving mechanisms for Indigenous peoples and their communities to exercise their rights in the traditional use of natural resources

● Discussion of the Concept for the Development of Reindeer Breeding
● Prospects for the creation and development of territories for the traditional use of natural resources by Indigenous peoples
● Technologies to improve the quality of products from the traditional use of natural resources
● Export-oriented products of traditional crafts
● Ensuring the food security of the population of the Arctic Zone of the Russian Federation with the involvement of local producers
● Regulation of the number of predators in places where Indigenous peoples engage in traditional economic activities
● Staffing of sectors of the economy in places where Indigenous peoples engage in traditional economic activities
