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, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 76 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.

Human Capital Development – Investing in the Country’s Economic Growth
4 September 2019
15:15—16:15
Nowadays, human capital development is an important part of a country’s economic development. Initially, human capital was perceived as investment in areas increasing a person’s ability to work. The concept has expanded and now includes investment in education, health, housing, culture, and other categories related to ensuring the quality of human life. This is due to the fact that professional skills alone are insufficient for developing human capital — a behavioural culture must also be nurtured. The creation of comfortable living conditions in the Far East is especially relevant in view of the importance for the region of reducing population outflow and the shortage of labour resources by eliminating interregional differences.

• What does investment in human capital entail?
• What challenges in the development of human capital do Russia and the Far East currently face? What measures should be taken to address them?
• What competencies need to be developed in a changing world? What should the region focus on to increase skilled labour?
