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

Digital Subsoil Use
6 June 2019

Geological exploration has strategic importance for Russia’s economic development. The economic effect of the digitalization of the Russian economy could increase the country’s GDP by RUB 4.1–8.9 trillion by 2025, and this amounts to 19–34% of the total expected GDP growth. Even more significant indicators can be obtained in subsoil use as large-scale digitalization will significantly reduce the costs of the most expensive elements such as exploration, drilling, and transportation and ensure the rational use of the subsoil. The creation of a single geoplatform combining these studies will give a new impetus to both regional geological exploration of subsoil resources and to international contractual obligations. The digitalization of subsoil use is a significant driver of development for certain regions and Russia as a whole. Can subsoil use become one of the drivers for the development of the digital economy and what measures does this require? Why is the digitalization of subsoil use strategically important for Russia? Will this strengthen Russia’s position in the CIS and vis-à-vis African economies? What are the best practices in Russia and internationally? What can Russian IT companies offer for subsoil use?
