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 changing economics of transportation and logistics
1 June 2017
16:45

The potent combination of innovations in transport, communications, and logistics for goods, services, and people is heralding a change in the way people make decisions on localities. Developments in transport and logistics can play a crucial role in global socioeconomic development, giving rise to new markets, innovative businesses, and new lifestyles, as well as expanding career prospects, and accelerated technological and social trends promise to impact work, life, and urban development. What are the key innovations that are transforming the economics of logistics and distance, and how far in the future will they begin to transform societies? What new business models should we anticipate? What does this mean for an individual’s relationship to work and lifestyle choices as distance no longer acts as a major barrier to interaction?
