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 159 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 Cost of Economic Restrictions: Successes and Future Prospects of an ‘About-Face’
30 September 2016
10:00

The upgrade of key industrial assets and devaluation of the national currency have created favourable conditions for developing domestic production. In the current circumstances, the prospect that sanctions could be alleviated or even fully removed demands a search for new approaches to Russia’s economic development. The potential increase of Western investors in the Russian market could well place an additional burden on local manufacturers. How can the Russian economy remain competitive if protectionist measures are removed? How can potential new realities be reconciled with the current benchmarks of the Russian economy? How likely is an increase in investment from Europe and Northern America in the event of an end to external disputes?
