The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, 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, 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 Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Energy Cooperation within the Asia-Pacific Region: Building Bridges
2 September 2016
12:45

Demand for energy is growing rapidly in the Asia-Pacific Region, causing each country there to seek to diversify its energy supply. Russia’s Far East has natural competitive advantages that could be exploited in joint energy projects. One example, requiring a combination of investment and expertise, is the creation of an energy ring including Russia, Japan, Korea, China and Mongolia. In the medium term, we could see construction of new gas pipelines and other energy bridges between grids in Asia-Pacific countries. What are the most promising areas for energy cooperation between the Russian Far East and Asia-Pacific countries? How can we attract foreign investment to develop the energy sector and energy-intensive industries? How should Russian companies approach foreign energy markets? How can we learn from the example of the European Supergrid project to implement a similar approach in Northeast Asia and ensure unrestricted trade between countries and electricity markets? What are the possibilities in terms of creating energy bridges between Russia and Asia-Pacific countries?
