The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Next Stage of the SCO Business Agenda
24 May 2018
09:00—10:15

Collaboration within the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is a priority for Russia’s foreign policy. In 2017, India and Pakistan became fully fledged members of the organization. Over the past year, they have been increasingly involved in the organization’s work, and have become members of the SCO Business Council. Strengthening of the role of the Business Council in the trade and economic agenda of the SCO is considered as a necessary precondition for full realization of the potential of trade and investment cooperation. What is the common business agenda and what opportunities exist for the representatives of observer states to participate in the process? What does the future hold for the cooperation between the Business Council and the working groups of the Organization? How can we eliminate barriers to trade and foster deeper industrial and technological cooperation, including through the creation of new production chains and the use of international financial instruments?
