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 – Sweden

Around 400 Swedish companies have representative offices and branches in Russia. Volvo, Scania, Oriflame, ABB, and Tetra Pak are some of the brands that are developing their own production networks, while IKEA is the largest private investor in Russia. The presence of Swedish businesses in Russia continues to expand. At the end of 2017, AstraZeneca, the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade, and Kaluga Region signed an investment agreement, providing for AstraZeneca investment of a further RUB 1 billion in upgrading its Russian facility and technology transfer to manufacture drugs to treat diseases that have a high impact on society. Advancing dialogue at the intergovernmental level and removing obstacles to regular contacts is strategically important for the growth of economic links between the two countries. What measures are necessary to support and accelerate the development of collaboration between Russia and Sweden? What more can the national government and regional authorities do to encourage Swedish companies to continue to invest in Russia? How can the digital transformation of business improve efficiency?
