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.

Advanced Special Economic Zones 2.0: What Now?
3 September 2016

The law governing Advanced Special Economic Zones, which came into effect in 2015, is only the first step towards creating a competitive investment climate in the Russian Far East. In order to win investors in the face of international competition, the ASEZ system must evolve until it outperforms global best practices. The practical experience of creating ASEZs amassed over the last two years has led to some strategic forks in the road. Not all of the initial ideas on conditions in ASEZs could be brought about in the first version of the legislation. Now that ASEZs in their present form have already proven successful with investors, it is vital to improve the regulations that govern the creation of ASEZs to incorporate current best practices. The goal of this strategic session is to discuss how ASEZ legislation will evolve in the future. What benefits should be offered to ASEZ residents working in various sectors and on various priority projects? What factors will shape the rating system used to evaluate proposals for new ASEZs and for new projects in existing ASEZs? Which regulatory powers will be transferred from the federal to local governments?
