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 162 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 media today: global transformation trends and prospects
23 May 2014

Work on determining a world media agenda has long become part of modern international relations. Publications of rating agencies’ statistics and opinions and biased interpretations of national economic parameters are often used by world powers as foreign policy instruments. As before, the world media market still looks unstable. In the course of the discussion, the heads of world news agencies and mass media will analyze the main trends and challenges facing the global media community. What is the role of the mass media in the modern world? Are the media coping with the role of mediators between the state and society well enough? Do the interests of the state prevail over the need for the impartial coverage of events? Is the mass media capable of controlling the authenticity of information? What is the place of professional ethics in modern journalism? Is there truly independent mass media? Can journalists be targets of political sanctions?
