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.

Extracting Solid Mineral Deposits in the Arctic: Increasing Investment Appeal
9 April 2019

The history of the industrial development of the Russian Arctic is not only inextricably linked to the extraction and processing of liquid hydrocarbons, but also solid mineral deposits. Today, with government support, projects to develop new solid mineral deposits are well under way, including for gold, copper, lead, zinc, nickel, silver, platinum, tin, and coal. Additional mechanisms are also being put in place to foster ongoing development in the sector. Given the tough geological and climatic conditions in the region, one of the government’s most important tasks is to draw up an effective regulatory framework to encourage companies to set up operations in the region, boost geological prospecting work, protect the environment, and promote the efficient use of subsoil resources. What measures could the government implement to ensure the profitability of mining projects in the Arctic? What specific steps need to be taken to increase the level to which the Arctic is studied?
