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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Russia’s Support for Private Investment in the Arctic: A New Approach
9 April 2019
16:30—18:00

More than 100 investment projects worth more than USD 130 billion have been initiated in the Russian Arctic. Together they encompass natural resource production, forestry and fisheries, developing sea ports, and railway infrastructure. Less than half of these have reached the active implementation stage. Conditions for investing and doing business in the Arctic are tougher, and the risks and costs involved are higher than in the rest of Russia. Access to advanced technology for working in Arctic conditions is limited. However, realizing the investment potential of the Arctic could lead to a breakthrough in Russia’s overall economic development. What needs to be done to unlock the investment potential of the region and win over investors? How will the new incentive system for investment projects in the Arctic look?
