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.

Russia and the EU: not together but alongside
16 June 2016

The relations between Russia and the European Union have reached an all-time low since the modern-day EU came into existence. The frustration that has accumulated over a number of years, surfaced during the Ukraine crisis. As a result, the old model has run out of steam, and the return to a «strategic partnership» that characterized relations during the 1990s and 2000s is no longer possible, and the idea of a «common future» is no longer on the agenda. Nevertheless, a high degree of interdependence remains, and there is a desire to preserve and strengthen economic, cultural and human ties, while it remains necessary to collaborate in response to common challenges. The crisis will pass sooner or later, but what will be the shape of the new model of relations — equitable, pragmatic, based on mutual respect — yet recognizing differences? And what place will Russia and the EU occupy in the new global architecture of the world, which is becoming increasingly fragmented, unpredictable, less unified and less «European», yet still interdependent?
