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.

Tourism or a Challenge: What Attracts People to the Arctic?
8 September 2022
13:00—14:00
The Federal Tourism Agency says that the tourist flow to the Arctic has grown by more than 60% from 725,000 to 1,172,000 people a year over the last 10 years. The Arctic and the Northern regions are an attractive destination for sophisticated tourists. Even though the northern territories are among the most unsuitable for guests due to their low temperatures and barren landscapes, they also have mysterious and breath-taking scenery. A trip to these regions can range from a trying overnight ordeal in a tent and hiking around for weeks to a luxury getaway with an outdoor pool and local delicacies from a personal chef.
● What tourism products does the Arctic and the North offer to tourists?
● How can we make the Arctic more accessible while preserving its unique nature?
● How can we identify promising areas and formats, while taking into account the specific features of a territory?
● What impact do cultural events have on regions and how do they help promote national culture?
● What kind of expertise and human resources are needed to develop the tourism industry in the northern territories and where should they be trained?
