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.

Coordinating the International Effort Against Illicit Trafficking in Manufactured Goods: Potential Ways Forward
24 May 2018

Illicit trafficking in manufactured goods has reached critical levels, significantly impeding industrial development, discouraging investors, and having a negative effect on the country’s economic security. Russia is actively working to stop illicit trafficking in manufactured goods. A State Commission has been created to coordinate efforts in this area. Work is continuously being done to develop and introduce efficient methods of combatting shadow markets, including excise goods, and this has yielded significant results. A goods labelling and tracking system is being developed. Compulsory labelling has been introduced for fur goods, while some other goods (drugs, tobacco) are undergoing pilot schemes. Combatting illicit trafficking in manufactured goods has become an agenda item for international relations. How do we efficiently counteract the growth of the shadow market, while also making use of international practices and the system already created within Russia? How can business attract the state’s attention to such issues, including those related to illicit trafficking? What are the prospects for international cooperation in this area, both within the EAEC and with key trading partners? What advantages do goods labelling and traceability hold for business, and what risks do businesses see in them?
