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.

Panel discussion: Small businesses in the era of globalization and digitization
5 September 2017
09:00

Every day, technology is becoming a bigger part of our daily lives, and doing business is no exception. For some, new technologies are becoming a trusted aid to business or even the basis of a successful startup, whereas for others they are the harbinger of major problems and bankruptcy. This discussion will assess the influence of new technologies on the Russian economy as a whole, and on small businesses in particular. Possible paths will be determined for the development of small enterprises in the new environment in which we now find ourselves. Specially invited experts will explain which sectors they expect to experience a substantial growth in profitability in future, and what forms of business will cease to exist in the next five years as new technologies render them obsolete. It is anticipated that the discussion will be of considerable practical value to participants. Young entrepreneurs in the Russian Far East need to move with the times, keeping themselves prepared for new technological challenges and opportunities.
