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.

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.

Infrastructure Bonds as an Effective Development Mechanism for the Regions
17 June 2022
10:00—11:15
Sanctions pressure, high inflation, and the disruption of supply chains are undoubtedly having a significant impact on the development prospects of Russia’s regional economies. Without effective state support measures, many regional projects that are supposed to be implemented this year will need to be revised due to increased project costs and rising interest rates, while some will have to be abandoned altogether. The ‘Infrastructure Menu’ that the Russian government has developed is designed to prevent a decline in the volume of infrastructure and housing construction and support key projects in the regions. One of the key mechanisms in the menu is infrastructure bonds, which are being handled by a single development institution in the housing sector represented by DOM.RF. They allow the regions to finance major projects for the construction of utility, social, and transport infrastructure at a preferential rate, both as part of housing projects and for citywide needs. Twelve projects have already been launched in eight Russian regions, and more than 50 projects worth over RUB 300 billion are currently being developed. The implementation of such projects has a multiplier effect and could serve as a locomotive to support the economy. Will it be possible to maintain the pre-sanctions pace of project implementation? What mechanisms have already produced positive results in the regions? What are the most effective implementation tools?
