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 160 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.

Destination Russia – shifting trends towards domestic and incoming tourism
1 June 2017

Tourism is a sector demonstrating sustained growth and ranks third amongst global export sectors. The tourism industry accounts for 7% of global exports overall, and almost one third of global services exports. The number of international trips is growing by an average of 4% every year. In addition, tourism produces a powerful synergistic effect. The rising tourist flow is ensuring increased revenues for 53 economic sectors which contribute to creating the tourism product, multiplying employment and self-employment, assisting in the development of small and medium-sized enterprises and involving them in export activity, improving living conditions for local populations, and smoothing imbalances in regional development. Russia has become one of the ten most visited countries in the world, and in 2016 was ranked forty-third in the World Economic Forum’s Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index, moving up two places compared with the previous year and overtaking Turkey. What needs to be done to maintain this positive trend and consolidate Russia’s position on the global tourism market?
