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 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.

Global Practices in Internet Regulation and Online Censorship
6 June 2019
15:00—16:15

The tightening of government control over information flows on the global network has become one of the most visible trends in regulatory activity around the world. An increasing number of governments are working to establish internet censorship that is suitable for specific regions. Restrictions also affect other areas, ranging from businesses, where companies are often over-regulated, to global cybersecurity issues. What are the development prospects for Internet regulation? What are the global practices of Internet censorship and what is their impact on the values of freedom of speech and economic relations between countries? What is the regulatory experience in Russia? What does the future of the Internet hold given the increasing use of information as a tool for confrontation within the global community? How can we fight misinformation on the net and its impact on society and the economy?
