The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 129 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Building openness and transparency in Russian public procurement

Public procurement makes up between 13% and 20% of GDP for economies worldwide, thereby having a significant impact on the allocation of public funds and on economic growth. Ensuring efficient and effective government purchasing is a key part of the reform agenda for many countries, including Russia, which recently introduced an electronic trading platform for public procurement. How has Russian and international business taken to this innovation and what further improvements should be made? How successful have other major economies been in truly opening up their public sector procurement to both domestic and international players?
