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.

Future Skills: Responding to the Challenges of the Labour Market
5 June 2021

The COVID-19 crisis continues to have global ramifications for the economy. New trends are clearly emerging in professional education and training, as well as in the labour market overall. These are impacting the skills which will be in demand in the future. It is becoming vital to review training standards and strategies in line with what the future is likely to hold. New industry development scenarios are also needed, along with plans regarding relevant skills. How has the pandemic impacted the supply and demand of professional skills? What factors should be considered by all those with a stake in personnel education and training? What skills should be taught to students (and indeed everyone in continuing professional education) in order to adapt to the new reality and continue to be in demand in a shifting landscape? What skills will the new economy require? How should approaches to professional training at educational institutions be reformed in order to transition to a model that focuses on practice? What is the role of WorldSkills in this process?
