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.

The Pros and Cons of Cultural Expansion
3 June 2021
17:00—18:15

A business trend of providing experiences is taking shape in the world today, and cultural tools and resulting soft power influences continue to play a key role in the promotion of national interests. This is unsurprising — these are the tools which help shape a country’s image, boost tourism, attract international students, and educate people. Naturally, they also have a bearing on international relations. Today, many governments are embarking on a policy of cultural expansion as an element of soft power. How is the projection and promotion of culture becoming a subject of heated competition? How might these trends serve as a means to bring people together, and what are the risks of creating further divisions?
