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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 165 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide, and 154 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Who Will Provide Asia–Russia–Europe Logistics for E-Commerce?
6 June 2019

The history of e-commerce began about half a century ago with TV programmes forming the ‘shop from the couch’ category, which became the first trial balloons that led to the ecommerce industry. With the advent of new technologies, the industry has changed dramatically. The total turnover of the global e-commerce market in 2018 exceeded USD 2.8 trillion, which is equal to the total GDP of the 100 poorest countries. In 2019, 1.9 billion people are projected to make at least one online purchase in more than 24 million online stores, generating a flow of 28 billion parcels. The issue of the quality and prompt delivery of increasing volumes remains critical. Transport and logistics are generally a circulatory system of e-commerce. In order to cope with the increasing parcel flow, the main transport corridors need to be expanded and revised. One such global logistics corridor is the Belt and Road Initiative that was launched a few years ago and has been gaining momentum over time. Over the past year, the volume has increased by 13.4%, and the deferred demand from European and Asian consumers will only strengthen the current trend. Russia occupies a strategically important geographical position on the China—Europe—China goods movement route. At the same time, the development of the country’s transit potential will help support and boost the export flow of domestic goods to international markets. How are Russian transport companies positioning themselves to fight for a market share in online trade transit? What foremost tasks must be fulfilled to enhance the country’s transit appeal? What are the most urgent regulatory initiatives that should be implemented?
