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.

Roundtable ‘Establishment and Support of Public Activism and Initiatives in the Far East’
5 September 2017
11:30

Today, the development of public initiatives and the non-profit sector in the Russian Far East is displaying the same trends found in the rest of the country. Activists are becoming better leaders, better organized, and better resourced, and communication with government bodies is improving. At the same time, the poorly developed infrastructure supporting non-profit organizations and activists’ projects, and remaining gaps in the legal and regulatory framework on which relations between the government and the third sector are based, are hindering the broader development of social activism among citizens and reducing the effectiveness of the work being done by non-profit organizations to tackle social problems and challenges. Keeping in mind the importance of citizens’ initiatives in resolving the majority of development issues faced by the Russian Far East, it is essential to bring together the efforts of national, regional, and local structures with the aim of reforming the entire support system for the non-profit sector and introducing and implementing effective practices and methods for working with initiatives in the Far Eastern Federal District. Developing infrastructure — first and foremost, resource centres, which can provide competent and accessible assistance to initiators as they develop, promote, and implement their projects and events — is also critical.
