The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

International Cooperation for Sustainable Development in the Arctic
16 June 2022
15:00—16:15
The importance of the Arctic in international politics and economics is steadily increasing as its accessibility increases as a result of climate change and ice release. The region is also playing an increasingly important role in the context of global energy transition. Ensuring a sustainable future of the Arctic, balanced in its ecological, social and economic dimensions, determines the need to consolidate the Arctic as a region of peace, stability and constructive interaction, as well as saving the fragile Arctic ecosystem, developing a monitoring system, including monitoring the melting of permafrost, promoting the principle of responsible development of Arctic resources, protecting and taking into account the interests of the population of the region, including indigenous peoples of the North, the development of scientific and technical cooperation. Achieving this goal is possible only by combining efforts, implementing joint projects and initiatives, and maintaining mutually beneficial multilateral cooperation based on international law.

The session will also present the first results of the ThinkArctic project, implemented jointly by the Roscongress Foundation, the HSE Center for Comprehensive European and International Studies and the Analytical Center under the Government of the Russian Federation under the program of Russia's chairmanship in the Arctic Council in 2021-2023. The aim of the project is to promote the Russian agenda in the field of sustainable development, strengthen constructive international dialogue and offer new points of contact for Russia's interaction in high latitudes with all interested countries and organizations.
