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.

Promoting Financial and Digital Literacy Among Young Professionals
5 June 2021
14:00—15:15

Improving financial literacy among young people is one of the key issues on the agenda for achieving the sustainable development of generations in many countries around the world. Adequate financial literacy not only helps young people to make prudent financial decisions, increases their ability to plan for the long term and improves quality of life, but also helps to minimize risk and therefore supports financial security. At the same time, low or insufficient levels of financial literacy and a lack of appropriate attitudes and skills with regard to financial behaviour increases the vulnerability of each individual, limiting their potential development, and can also negatively impact the stability of society as a whole, jeopardizing the success of an entire generation. A lack of financial competence makes people vulnerable to financial fraud and potentially exposes them to excessive debt and other social problems including depression and burnout. What problems do recent university graduates and young professionals face when starting to earn an income that needs to be saved and invested? How great are the risks young people are exposed to when making investment decisions? What is the role of the employer in improving the financial literacy of young professionals?
