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

Global challenges such as epidemics of infectious diseases have a huge impact on the economies of countries and entire regions. In recent years, the frequency and scale of new threats has grown as a result of several factors, including economic integration and increased cross-border travel and trade. What steps can be taken to prevent health emergencies and to mitigate their negative impact on economies and societies, and what are the costs of managing such risks? What can be learned from the experience of fighting the Ebola outbreak in Africa, and Russia’s experience of public—private partnership in providing assistance to the Republic of Guinea in particular? What new and unexplored approaches, tools, and methods could be used to prevent and respond to outbreaks of deadly diseases?
