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 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

Healthy Regions: Projects and Best Practices
6 June 2019
16:45—18:00

According to WHO estimates, people’s health is 50–55% dependent on their lifestyle, 20% on the environment, 18–20% on genetic predisposition, and only 8–10% on healthcare. Despite such a limited impact by the healthcare system, it’s difficult to overestimate the potential role of the regional authorities. It’s not only a matter of improving healthcare, but also environmental issues and the availability of recreational areas, sports facilities, and information campaigns that aim to promote a healthy lifestyle. Big business could be another important player in this regard by not only implementing internal corporate employee healthcare programmes, but also external social initiatives to inform the public about ways to fully transition to a new level of well-being and health. Creating infrastructure for a healthy society offers great prospects for small and medium-sized businesses, which now have the opportunity to fill a niche in the production of farm products, organic cosmetics, simulators, biodegradable packaging, reusable utensils, and much more. How can the regional authorities support breakthrough business ideas? How might it be possible to increase life expectancy in the regions in the future through the joint efforts of activists, business, and the government?
