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.

Towards Leadership in the Global Energy Mix: Priorities of the Gas Industry
2 October 2019

With its reduced impact on the environment and low cost, natural gas is set to be one of the most popular energy sources in the medium and long term. The transition from coal to gas will reduce current levels of greenhouse gas emissions in the power generation sector by 80% and give a major boost to the process of decarbonization. The use of natural gas as a source of hydrogen and motor fuel can make gas the leading global energy source in the long term. Can the gas industry continue to expand the supply of pipeline gas from production sites or ports to supply remote regions with natural gas? How can LNG production efficiency be increased, and the cost of gas production and liquefaction reduced? Will manufacturers be able to supply the required amount of gas with the reduced terms of LNG supply agreements and rate cuts in regional markets? Can we expect the reduction in coal consumption from China and other major consumers to accelerate? What are the optimal approaches to the development of the transport infrastructure and tanker fleet capacity in order to meet the rapidly growing demand for LNG?
