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 162 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.

Russia–Germany: New Forms of Cooperation in a Crisis
30 September 2016
14:00

Germany remains Russia’s most important trading partner, having consistently figured in the top three countries in terms of trade with Russia, despite the decline in trade turnover between the two countries to USD 45.8 billion in 2015. Overcoming external differences is key to developing the bilateral relationship. A number of institutional initiatives are under way, aimed at strengthening dialogue and stabilizing the rules of the game. These include special investment contracts and the Agency for Technology Transfer. The business community has kick-started business platforms designed to overcome existing economic issues and barriers. The revival of the Russian—German strategic working group was an important milestone. What new forms of mutually beneficial cooperation could be useful in restoring trade to its former level? How can the potential and efficiency of existing tools be unlocked? How can trade and economic ties be maintained without losing trust?
