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 160 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.

Collaboration Between Private and Public Sectors for Achieving SDGs
7 June 2019
10:00—11:15
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are at the core of the global agenda with the three major interrelated elements — economic growth, social integration and environmental protection. Everyone has a role to play in achieving the 17 universal, comprehensive, and transformative goals, and the interaction of business and government has great potential to advance these goals and to achieve them worldwide.
In Russia, the number of companies that commit themselves to supporting growth and achieving specific SDGs has been increasing. At the same time, the leaders of the private sector publicly advocate for the government to take a more active role in promoting the SDGs and supporting related initiatives and projects.
‒ What is the place and role of business in the process of sustainable transformation? How can business interact with the state within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals?
‒ What is the role of the state in supporting the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals? What resources can the state attract to improve the efficiency of work in this direction?
‒ Are Russian companies ready to support the sustainable development Agenda and to make it a long-term business priority? How can businesses integrate SDGs into their business processes while increasing profits?
