A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 76 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.

A Proactive Immigration Policy as a Tool for Development and Attracting Investment
8 June 2019

Over the medium term, the Russian economy is expected to see the size of the working-age population decline by more than 3 million by 2026, with about 400,000 people leaving the workforce every year. At the same time, Russia continues to be a donor of highly skilled workers for economically developed countries. Immigration flows are not fully capable of meeting the needs of the economy, including future needs for skilled and highly skilled professionals. In the long run, unfavourable demographic trends and changes in the structural needs of the labour force impacted by new technologies will increase the imbalance between supply and demand and stimulate new mechanisms to meet the needs of this market. What measures can contribute to accelerated technological renewal and the development of the Russian economy? How can high-performance jobs with decent wages be created? What changes does Russian immigration legislation require to attract highly qualified foreign specialists to the country and retain them on a permanent basis?
