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 165 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide, and 154 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Digitalization - an Engine for Growth and Inclusive Development
24 May 2018

The B20 is a partner group of the G20. It represents the interests of the business community and works to develop concrete proposals for G20 leaders on a consensus basis, with the objective of forming global policy to overcome key challenges. The B20 Regional Consultation Forum is a joint event held with the B20 Chair for 2018, the Group of Six. This Group brings together leading Argentinian business associations: the Argentine Bankers Association (ADEBA), the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange (BCBA), the Argentine Chamber of Commerce and Services (CACS), the Argentine Chamber of Construction (CAMARCO), the Argentine Rural Society (SRA), and the Industrial Chamber of Argentina (UIA). Heads of major companies and business associations, senior representatives of governmental bodies from the G20 nations, and the heads of international organizations will discuss B20 recommendations for G20 leaders. One of the key issues to be addressed is ensuring that the digital transformation becomes a driving force behind growth that is global, innovative, inclusive, and sustainable. What new business models and government policies should be employed to support these changes, including the development of a digital infrastructure, digital literacy, and related skills? How can cooperation between governments and the private sector be promoted to overcome the technological gap and ensure social sustainability and responsibility? The results of the discussion will be taken into consideration during development of the B20’s recommendations, which are to be agreed at the B20 summit in Buenos Aires in autumn 2018 before being presented at the G20 summit on 30 November to 1 December 2018.
