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 163 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.

The Digital Agenda as a Factor in Increasing the Competitiveness of the EAEU
24 May 2018
09:00—10:15

The World Bank estimates that by implementing a joint digital agenda by 2025 the combined GDP of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) could add up to 1% in growth annually, create 8 million new jobs, and bring USD 50 billion in savings to businesses. These and other multiplier effects could be the result of EAEU countries joining forces in joint digital projects, as well as coordinating actions and approaches for government policies in developing the digital economy. A key milestone would be the creation of ‘one’s own centre of strength’ in a single economic space — a centre to accelerate innovation, attract investment and highly qualified staff, and promote globally competitive production. How can we ensure that such a centre of excellence is established? Construction of proprietary, competitive Eurasian digital assets — primarily digital platforms — and equitable digital partnerships are some of the possible solutions. The formation of these assets will lay the groundwork for mutually beneficial cooperation with regional and global players, and will help augment expertise and attract and maintain consumers in the EAEU digital space. What could become a driver of improved EAEU competitiveness in the global economy? What are the preconditions for building a competitive environment in the EAEU for Eurasian digital ecosystems? How can integration with the global digital space and expansion of international cooperation in a transforming economy be balanced with maintaining digital sovereignty? What areas of common interest can be identified between interregional and global digital economy initiatives and the plan for the digital transformation of the EAEU?
