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.

Creating a Compassionate Society: How Best to Develop Charitable activity in Russia?
26 May 2018
13:30—14:15

The potential for charities and philanthropists to improve people’s quality of life extends to a whole range of social spheres, including education and the preservation of cultural heritage. With state mechanisms unable to keep up with the changes taking place in the world and in the employment market, charities and philanthropists are taking on the role of pioneers. How can charities, philanthropists, and the government combine their efforts? Is Russian society ready to play an active role in the charitable sector? How can charitable foundations be put to work systematically and effectively? What skills and personal qualities are important for young professionals who want to pursue a career in the non-profit sector?
