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 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Character of a City Defined by Urban Habits
4 June 2021
10:00—11:15

Urbanization and suburban development are both on the rise, as is the demand for higher living standards in cities. These factors, together with black swans such as the international economic crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic have all had a substantial impact on the life of cities today. The emphasis has shifted to building local multifunctional urban centres, increasing travel options and convenience, and creating green recreational spaces and water systems. Competition among global cities for human capital is also driving change. What principles and approaches to urban development should be cast aside, and which new ones should be adopted as a necessity? What are leading urban development projects based upon, and what principles are urban project initiators, experts, and developers guided by? How are cities responding to unpredictable events of global magnitude?
