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.

Regional Policy 2030: Solutions for Launching a New Investment Cycle
12 November 2020
11:45—13:00
In order to achieve the aims set out in the national development plan, it is vital to ensure an upturn in business activity and to launch an investment cycle in the regions. A Russian presidential decree covering national development aims for the period to 2030 has set the target of achieving a 70% growth in investment by the end of the decade. However, the current rate of investment growth in the nation’s economy is steadily decreasing, with figures for 2019 putting it at 1.9%. When it comes to attracting investment and implementing large, capital-intensive projects, regional governments play a key role. That said, there needs to be a qualitative shift away from the current trend whereby regions compete in a race to create advanced special economic zones, build infrastructure, and provide subsidies. Instead, the emphasis needs to be on an investment agenda for the long term, and on fostering economic growth in each region through the application of sustainable development practices.
● How can investment processes be galvanized in the regions?
● What is hindering investment growth in the regions?
● What practices could facilitate the launch of a new investment cycle in the country (which would need to be subsequently replicated)?
● What solutions could help bridge current gaps in the nation’s investment and tax legislation?
● What powerful ideas would help improve the investment climate in the regions?
