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.

The Russian Youth Economic Agenda 2018–2024
26 May 2018
15:15—16:30

It is estimated that a quarter of Russian citizens who are currently active members of the workforce are between the ages of 15 and 30, but the contribution of this youth demographic to GDP is just 5%. Given that 67% of young people participate in the economy and that they are eager to learn new skills and acquire the ability to adapt quickly to changing conditions, it stands to reason that young people’s contribution to Russia’s GDP can be significantly expanded by developing their potential in different sectors of the economy. What does the youth entrepreneurship ecosystem that has taken shape in recent years in Russia look like? What best practices for increasing young people’s participation in the economy have been adopted around the world? What in general should the Russian youth economic agenda be over the next 10 years? What are the main priorities, and how should state and business cooperate with each other to achieve common aims?
