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 162 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.

From Carbon to Oxygen: The Economy of a New Era
25 May 2018

The global economy is setting new trends and dictating new working conditions in the Russian forestry industry. What will drive its development, and what direction might investors choose as they identify their market niche? How can the realities encountered by project initiators, such as environmental concerns, high-tech innovations in production, the availability of raw materials, and reforestation commitments, as well as costly credit lines, best be addressed? How can market participants capitalize on the current opportunities? How can the environmental responsibilities of producers and consumers be balanced in selecting and transitioning to new biomaterials in construction, trade, and energy? What could stimulate businesses and the general population to use environmentally responsible wood materials, as has been the case in developed economies, and as these materials become increasingly important in a world still dominated by concrete and petroleum-based products? What is our contribution to living conditions for future generations?
