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.

Future Arctic: Sustainable Solutions
9 April 2019
10:00—11:30

The Arctic is becoming increasingly significant. The region’s environment is altering rapidly, and cli-mate change is already a reality. While this creates challenges, it also provides new opportunities. Se-curity and sustainable development in the Arctic are vital. Arctic nations are particularly responsible for collaborating on enduring solutions. Black carbon emissions are a major contributing factor to warming in the Arctic. Technologies which can effectively reduce emissions already exist, and they not only offer health and environmental benefits, but economic ones too. What steps need to be taken in the Arctic to respond to current challenges? What examples of clean energy exist in the region? What needs to be done to facilitate the transition to cleaner fuel, particularly liquefied natural gas in Arctic shipping?
