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.

Legal Aspects in Relation to Urban Development: Tools to Regulate Infrastructure, the Economy, and the Social Sphere
29 June 2022
10:00—11:30
The topic of spatial planning is receding more and more into the background. Discussions about comprehensive planning are also becoming less relevant. The Law on Strategic Planning needs to develop, especially in the face of changing geopolitical conditions. One can observe a strong tendency for more and more exceptions to be made to the general rule. The focus is shifting to the development of preferential regimes, which are being tasked with driving spatial development. Integrated spatial development has firmly established itself as the topic of the day. However, spatial regulation must not leave the urban context, outside spatial planning and the regulation of urban development. This raises many interconnected issues concerning how to deal with situations for which general regulations for spatial planning and urban zoning do not apply to local areas. How, then, can we balance development of varying scales – agglomerations, urban and local – when attracting investment? How can we ensure the integrated development of individual areas and the sustainable development of the city as a whole? What mechanisms and tools will be needed to accomplish the task? What role should local communities play in the process?
