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.

Investment Projects in the Arctic: Incentive Regimes
17 June 2022
12:00—13:15
For more than a year and a half, the world’s largest special economic zone has been operating in the Russian Arctic. It brings together several preferential regimes in nine of the country’s regions, and, despite the challenges posed by the global economy, the business community’s interest in implementing projects in these hard-to-reach territories is only growing. Over the past year, the number of residents of preferential regimes in the Arctic has increased by more than 250, which shows how appealing the range of tax and administrative benefits are. However, the climatic features of the Arctic regions and the specifics associated with the implementing projects there exacerbate various problems for investors, particularly given the turbulence of the global economy this year. What role can the Russian Arctic play in developing the economy during this period of sanctions? What referential solutions in the Arctic do these new times dictate? What major projects are already being implemented and may be promising in the near future? What support measures do residents need to ensure independence from Western organizations and holdings?
