The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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.

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 129 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Russia – Italy: historical ties too strong to sever
19 June 2015

In 2013, bilateral trade between Russia and Italy reached record levels of about USD 52 billion, with mutual direct investment topping USD 3.4 billion — soon to be complemented by an RDIF—Italian joint development fund of USD 1 billion. While sanctions have resulted in a 10% dip in trade turnover in 2014, it remains on a strong footing, with over 500 Italian companies operating in Russia, and Italy maintaining its position as the second largest European market for Russian exports. In the midst of geopolitical tensions, what practical steps can businesses and policymakers take to further stimulate bilateral economic activity? Is there a role for business to create an improved atmosphere for political dialogue between the two countries? What sectors hold the most potential for expanding economic ties?
