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.

Russia and Its Role in Global Food Security
3 June 2021

Continuously falling energy prices are inevitably accelerating Russia’s economic diversification. Taking into account the geographical location of the Russian Federation, its enormous land reserves, and diverse range of climate zones appropriate for agriculture and animal husbandry, agribusiness is set to facilitate the explosive growth of the country’s economy. Over the last 20 years, Russia has successfully addressed the import substitution of agricultural products and ensured the food security of the country. However, genetics and selective breeding have essentially been forgotten. Updated support measures for agribusinesses were successfully implemented in a timely manner, which eventually granted the impetus to the development of enterprises and rural regions. The out-migration of people living in rural regions to large cities has been slowed, though we are now reaching a point where the domestic market is saturated with inexpensive, high-quality products. What new consumer support measures should be developed to increase public demand for healthy food?
