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 163 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 for Europe: a reliable relationship
2 June 2017
08:30

With Europe’s domestic gas production projected to decline rapidly in the next 20 years, one thing is very clear as regards the supply of natural gas to Europe: there is an urgent need to connect new gas reserves to Europe. Without sufficient supplies of natural gas, the EU cannot simultaneously pursue its three key energy objectives: secure, sustainable and affordable energy. Based on the EU’s own reference scenario, Europe will need to address a future import gap of around 120bcm. LNG and Russian gas are the only substantial supplies on which Europe can count for its long-term gas supply needs. Russian gas reserves are big enough to meet this import requirement in the coming years, and are ready to be connected to European consumers. Europe and Russia have a long standing and mutually beneficial energy relationship. What is the strategic advantage of Russian gas for Europe? How will Russian gas and LNG compete to ensure security of supply? Why does Europe need additional pipeline capacities to transport gas from Russia’s vast gas fields? How does Nord Stream 2 fit with the EU’s energy strategy?
