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, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide.

Strategic Vectors of Healthcare Development in the Russian Far East
2 September 2016

The Russian Far East needs to attract people from elsewhere in Russia if it is to enjoy rapid growth. Social security, and above all healthcare, are major factors when choosing a place to live in Russia. In this context, the Far Eastern Federal District needs to provide high-quality accessible healthcare in spite of its limited resources. This will only be possible with a new perspective on healthcare development in the region, taking account of the geographical circumstances, the financial limitations and the proximity of the Asian markets. The key issues to discuss will include how to organize primary care and ensure accessibility even in remote regions. Another important topic is the possibility of attracting private firms to provide primary healthcare services and of making use of the latest advances in telehealth, following the examples of Australia and Canada. There will be a separate discussion of funding the primary sector with the aim of attracting private firms. Collaboration with leading clinics in Asian countries, including through public-private partnerships, may bring new opportunities for developing high-tech healthcare in the inpatient sector. Ensuring optimum population coverage and managing patient flows and working on pricing to ensure high-quality inpatient care are important challenges in terms of developing this area. Managing emergency care is a separate issue and requires rethinking approaches to implementing inter-regional healthcare projects — an area in which a number of regions have positive experience.
