The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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.

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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Russian Transport Corridors for Global Logistics: Technological, Efficient, and Reliable
3 June 2021
12:00—13:15
Global trade wars, sanctions, the COVID-19 pandemic, stricter border control, the congestion of traditional corridors, and transport collapses, for example, the Suez Canal, as well as the
expected increase in global trade by a third by 2030, to 17 billion tonnes per year, have force carriers to look for alternative routes to ship goods.
Russia can offer such routes, with its advantageous geographic position and borders with 18 countries, access to sea basins, as well as an extensive railway network. By utilizing these advantages, Russia will be able to increase the throughput of transport routes to 400 million tonnes per year by 2030, boost exports of non-primary goods to USD 250 billion, and generate
up to USD 100 billion in revenue from the transit of goods. We will discuss what needs to happen to achieve such indicators, and what has already been done now, during the session
‘Russian Transport Corridors for Global Logistics: Technological, Efficient, and Reliable’.

Main themes:
— Key competitive advantages of Russian transport corridors, points of growth, and
impediments to development
— Infrastructure modernization: what investments will be required and where will they be
directed?
— Growth in industrial production and exports: how can we build a unified sustainable
transport system that customers need?
— Efficient import logistics and attracting transit: smart regulation, tariff changes, and
digitalization
