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.

Public–private partnership for development: mechanisms and benefits
1 June 2017

The private sector participates in sustainable development programmes, which are seen as part of corporate social responsibility and investment in human capital. By combining economic interests with contributions towards the development of countries and regions, companies are better able to manage the risks associated with emergency situations, and to present themselves as responsible representatives of the business community which subscribe to the Sustainable Development Goals. Russia is one of the leading donor countries to international development aid programmes. Yet Russian businesses thus far have little experience of involvement in these programmes. The required public—private partnership mechanisms are not well developed, there is no vision or strategy for collaborative efforts in this area, and businesses often do not understand the value of these programmes or their potential benefits, including in the context of promoting their interests in a particular region. Why do new epidemic diseases pose a threat to the economy and to security? What kind of losses do investors sustain as a result of infectious diseases? How and why do global business leaders take part in international development aid programmes? How can the Russian experience of public—private partnership with RUSAL in the fight against Ebola in Guinea be harnessed in other regions? Inclusive investment: is investment necessary in order to reduce the losses incurred due to epidemic diseases? What kind of public—private partnership approaches and tools exist in the development sector? What is the outlook for the role of private Russian funds in international development aid programmes?
