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, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 76 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.

Creative industries driving exports and enhancing a country’s image abroad
2 June 2017

Creative ideas and innovative solutions are becoming not just an important element of regional economic development, but core to global economic and sociocultural processes. Creative industries improve the investment prospects of cities and countries, allowing them to compete for skilled labour and young talent, and underpin strategies to promote exports of high-tech products and creative and digital services. Innovative and creative products have a positive effect on the country’s international image, sustaining progressive and modern brand values. How significant is the role of creative industries in driving economic growth and projecting ‘soft power’? Are there any current projects aimed at supporting and promoting the Russian creative sector in international markets? How can the creative capital index be measured and can it be used to improve the country’s image?
