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 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Global Mining Industry: Challenges and Prospects
7 June 2019
17:00—18:15

The history of extracting and enriching mineral deposits is as old as that of humanity itself. A growing population, urbanization, social and economic development, and even the demand for a green and low-carbon economy are contributing to the growing use of minerals and metals. Thus, at the beginning of the 20th century, global production of copper amounted to around 500,000 tonnes. Almost 100 years later, it had exceeded 11 million tonnes and in 2018, production almost reached 24 million tonnes. However, satisfying today’s growing demand for these essential materials comes with a range of challenges. Reserves at mines and mineral deposits are dwindling, there is a need to explore and develop new deposits in remote areas, and there are limited resources to extract and enrich commodities, leading to increased costs. All this means that innovations are essential to maintain profitability and ensure the continued production of these resources. What steps are being taken by industry players to effectively explore and develop current and new deposits? How are these solutions impacting companies’ finances, and to what extent are they helping to satisfy growing demand for raw materials and securing sustainable development? What factors will the industry depend on as it continues to evolve?
