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.

Preserving Cultural Diversity in the Age of Global Digital Platforms
4 June 2021

Russia and the world in general have seen a steady trend towards public use of audiovisual services as a primary viewing and entertainment platform. The unique diversity of content from around the world can suit anyone’s needs. On the one hand, a giant audience and access to users from around the world provides local content creators with the opportunity to make their mark and enter new markets. On the other hand, the rules on these platforms are transnational and declared universal for all users, frequently failing to take local specifics into account. These platforms’ enormous financial resources, sometimes surpassing not only the means of local platforms, but even entire countries, allow them to dictate priorities in the production and purchase of content by local creators and allows them to spend significant amounts of money on amassing and retaining consumers. What are the optimal forms of support for national content creators? What methods can be used to ensure equal opportunities for the distribution of global and local content?
