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.

Italian Lessons: Small and Medium-sized Businesses on the Path to a Circular Economy
2 June 2021

Innovative solutions, the realities of a post-COVID world, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution are putting enterprises on the fast track to a circular economy. A circular economy is an economic system based on the continual reuse of resources and the reduction of waste. When resources are limited, a circular economy becomes a sort of inevitability, part of a new reality, and is meant to apply to all sectors — from manufacturing and infrastructure to the service sector. Small and medium-sized businesses are poised to play an enormous role in these processes. This new challenge opens up new doors for such flexible organizations, which are capable of rapidly adopting and promoting innovative solutions and adapting to changing conditions. Italy’s experience, where SMEs form the basis of the economy, could prove exceedingly valuable at this point in time.
