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 163 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.

Socioeconomic Development Mechanisms in the Arctic Macroregion
29 March 2017

Various regional development institutes — development agencies and corporations — have been set up to promote development and attract investment to the regions of the Russian Federation. These organizations help to boost regional development, implement regional development strategies, and establish regions’ investment appeal. They also launch and support investment projects. What kind of projects are being supported, how are they implemented, and what obstacles do they face? A further key issue is joint work by the regional authorities and the development agencies and corporations. Good coordination and close collaboration on the part of development agencies and corporations will inevitably facilitate the development of the Arctic macroregion. Issues for discussion: • The social and economic development of the Arctic zone. The implementation of key investment projects and the realities of supporting these projects • The investment attractiveness of regions in the Arctic zone. Ensuring that investors receive a warm reception in a harsh climate • What kind of development institute does the Arctic region need? • The development of interregional and international cooperation on project implementation
