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 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Socioeconomic Development Mechanisms in the Arctic Macroregion
29 March 2017
13:30

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
