The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

The Sustainability of the International Trade System and the Future of Globalization
6 June 2019
16:45—18:00

International trade — traditionally a major engine of global growth — has been experiencing a significant slowdown over the past few years with a growth forecast of only 2.6% for 2019 triggered by commercial tensions, a slowdown in the major economies, financial volatility, and tightening monetary policies of developed economies. Does the WTO remain a sustainable rules-based international trade system, or does it require fundamental reform to ensure that it plays a role in job creation, growth and stability around the world? How could a reinvigorated international trade system help address challenges stemming from technological automation to stimulate job creation and boost development? How might shrinking trade and a reversal of globalization trends impact economic growth and security across the globe?
