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 155 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

Taking Responsible Care of Pets. Experience and Perspectives.
3 June 2021

The world is not only becoming more creative and attentive to humans, but is also striving to become more friendly to the environment and animals, which have been companions for human civilization since time immemorial. Creative ecology, cultural diversity, and responsible consumption are all forcing modern people to reconsider their attitude to their lifestyles and take more responsible, environmentally friendly, and humanistic approaches.

The number of cats and dogs in Russia is on the rise today, and there has been a significant shift in attitudes towards pets, as owners become more and more responsible. According to a Mars Petcare study, 59% of Russian families have a cat or a dog today, and the number of pets has increased by 23% over the past three years. Almost 90% of owners view their pets as a family member, friend, or child. The pet care industry is developing, legislation on the responsible treatment of animals is being refined, and their owners are becoming more concerned about the availability of services and a comfortable urban environment. There has been greater attention to interaction between people and pets and the benefits that it provides in terms of improving physical and mental health. Responsible breeding and affordable, high-quality veterinary care have ceased to be a prerogative of the professional community and are becoming the subject of broad-ranging public discussion.

  • How is urban infrastructure being transformed, taking into account the changing role of pets in people’s lives? What pet-friendly innovations can Russian cities adopt from Western countries?
  • How can we encourage greater responsibility and awareness in dealing with animals?
  • What legislative changes can we expect in terms of the government regulation of the treatment of pets?
  • What measures can be taken to reduce animal homelessness?
