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.

Transformations in the Energy Sector
25 May 2018
12:00—13:15

The transformation of the global economy is accelerating, and the revolution in how businesses and consumers interact, in logistics, and in communications means that we all have to adapt or face the prospect of falling behind. The energy sector is no exception, with its role in the global economy steadily growing. A significant part of global GDP growth can be attributed to new consumers being integrated into the economy as well as to the growth of the service sector, and both factors imply the need for an affordable and reliable energy supply. The source is no longer important; what matters is how competitive the energy is and whether it is accessible, particularly with power that is consumed in the form of electricity. The choice between electrical outlet and petrol station is becoming more topical, and is having an impact on long-term solutions in the energy sector. How can uncertainty be reduced to ensure that the fuel and energy sector remains attractive to investors, and to mitigate future volatility, while maintaining ample energy supplies for the global economy in 20 years?
