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 155 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.

Integration vs. Protectionism: The Role of Development Institutions in the Creation of a Common Economic Space in Greater Eurasia
7 June 2019

The world is currently facing a turning point, the likes of which it hasn’t seen in decades. A unipolar global mindset is being replaced by a multipolar world led by Asian and Eurasian economies, demonstrating both diversity and justice of the new world order. Russia maintains the possibility of a fruitful partnership with the European Union. Moreover, by deciding to involve the EAEU in China’s One Belt, One Road initiative, Russia is proposing a large-scale Eurasian partnership, thus proving its mindset of a modern superpower. Eurasian and Asia-Pacific countries are becoming increasingly interdependent in their socioeconomic development. As a result, integration processes are gaining momentum in various formats, despite hurdles such as trade conflicts, relapses into unilateralism and protectionism, political differences, attempts to fragment the economic space, and sanctions rhetoric. The globalization projects that have gained ground over the past few decades are now faltering under increasing protectionism, which is often masked as solidarity between Euro-Atlantic partners, each of whom are pursuing their own separate economic goals. Can the national and multilateral development institutions of Greater Eurasia break down the walls of economic isolation and help form a common space for harmonious growth on a continental scale? What is their role in harmonizing and implementing various integration projects? What infrastructure, industrial, and trade projects require the expertise and resources of Eurasian and Asia-Pacific development institutions? What foreign and multilateral development institutional experience can be used in implementing Russian national projects?
