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.

The SCO and prospects for the development of broad Eurasian partnership
1 June 2017
16:45
Russia views developing collaboration within the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) as one of its foreign policy priorities. The Republic of Kazakhstan is chairing the SCO Heads of State Council in 2016–2017, while Russia chairs the Heads of Government Council.
At the SCO summit in Astana on June 8–9 this year, India and Pakistan will become full members of the organization. One of the challenges raised by this development will be to ensure that India and Pakistan can be integrated comfortably within the SCO’s collaborative framework.
A dominant trend at the present stage in the development of the global economy is the active promotion of regional integration processes. Russia has presented proposals for forming a broad Eurasian partnership, which would include the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), the SCO, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). One approach to realizing these proposals will be to join together the building of the EAEU with China’s Silk Road Economic Belt project which, together with the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, is part of the ‘One Belt, One Road’ concept. The effective participation of SCO member states in collaborative efforts in this area will doubtless have a positive effect on the resolution of national economic development issues.
