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.

Session 2. Russia’s image in Southeast Asia and Southeast Asia’s image in Russia: the role of education, mass media and cultural exchanges
5 September 2017
14:00

Mutual perception is a major factor which can facilitate or impede productive international cooperation. Russians share a mostly positive image of ASEAN member states, and the same holds true for the image of Russia in most ASEAN countries. Yet, admittedly, these images are rather blurred and full of stereotypes. Ordinary people and elites in both Russia and ASEAN know very little about their counterparts and have difficulty building mutual understanding. Participants in this session are invited to discuss how Russia and ASEAN countries can understand their partners better by learning more about each other through academic and cultural exchanges, media reporting, and other channels for public and interpersonal contacts.
