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.

The Arctic: A Region of Rivalry or Cooperation?
9 April 2019
In recent times, the Arctic has invariably been a core topic of discussion. A range of circumstances are behind this increasing focus on the Arctic, from the macroregion’s geopolitical and strategic role (as a space where the interests of nuclear superpowers intersect), to its economic potential (with regards resources and transport routes), to environmental challenges (global warming). In the coming decades, the Arctic could serve as a major repository of energy resources, and one of the planet’s key transport arteries. It is therefore unsurprising that the interests of numerous countries — both in the Arctic and beyond — are tied to the region. Security is another major factor. All Arctic nations have some form of military programme, as do other powers interested in expanding to the North.
Topics for discussion at this session will include regional approaches taken by Arctic Council nations, opportunities to collaborate on lowering underlying tensions and confrontational rhetoric, and focusing on a positive agenda. Particular attention will be given to cross-border and interregional cooperation in the economic and humanitarian fields.
