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 155 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.

Sustainable Development of Northern Territories and Indigenous Communities
5 June 2021
10:00—11:15

The Russian Federation is chairing the Arctic Council for the next two years, and among the focal points of international cooperation is advancing joint projects to ensure the sustainable development of the Arctic and to preserve the cultural heritage of indigenous minorities. Maintaining basic lifestyle systems and effectively catering to the interests of local populations when implementing solutions to global socioeconomic issues depends on the government’s role as regulator as well as businesses’ dedication to social responsibility objectives. How do the government and businesses interact with indigenous communities? How can we balance the interests of industrial development and efforts to preserve the natural environment? What are the sustainable development priorities of indigenous communities, and what role do they play in decision-making?
