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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Transit Potential of the Russian Far East: From Geography to Geoeconomics
3 September 2016
09:30

Freight traffic from the Asia-Pacific Region reaches all corners of the world. By rerouting some of the freight along major transport routes in the Russian Far East, shippers in China, Korea, Japan, and other countries can cut their costs significantly. In recent years, the Russian Government has issued a number of decrees designed to tap into the transit potential of the Far Eastern Federal District. The main focus of these measures is to expand the region’s port infrastructure, modernize the railways and streamline border crossing and customs procedures. Which freight from the Asia-Pacific Region could be shipped expediently via Russia’s Far East? What railway, port and cross-border infrastructure in the Russian Far East holds potential for investment? How can the Advanced Special Economic Zone (ASEZ) and free port regimes protect investors and increase returns on investment in the transit infrastructure? What steps must be taken to make transport corridors more accessible and attractive to investors? What is the outlook for using the Northern Sea Route as a global transport corridor?
