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 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 133 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 70 countries worldwide.

Session 7 - The current socioeconomic crisis: is it time to re-energize dialogue between Europe and Russia?
23 October 2020

To ensure sustainable and balanced economic growth from the Atlantic to the Pacific, a market needs to be regulated by compatible and consistent norms based on economic cooperation. That is why regional economic associations, in particular the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union, need to step up their level of collaboration. However, progress is being hampered by faltering political dialogue, which remains stuck at the take-off stage. Is the new economic reality significantly affecting the relationship between Europe and Russia, or do they remain captive to the misunderstandings of the past? Is it time for the parties to start looking for mutually beneficial solutions to common problems? As a new European Commission takes the reins in Brussels and significant developments occur on the international stage (such as rising trade tensions between US and China or the winding-down of conflict in the Middle East), could this be the time for Russia and the EU to re-engage and start a new chapter marked by more dynamic cooperation? Has that time come, and who should take the lead — Moscow or Brussels?
