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 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Investment Projects in the Arctic: Incentive Regimes
I think we should be focusing on medium-sized businesses. <...> I would like to look at issues related to connecting to the grid, and the quality of the grid. <...> The current deterioration of the grid makes it impossible to develop in any real way. <...> In order to balance things, we need to increase rates by around 15% per year for the next four or five years.

The Northern Sea Route: An International Transport Corridor
In Archangelsk, the cargo turnover at our port is growing absolutely confidently, […] shippers say today that the problem is that there is not a single free slot for two months ahead and the entire port capacity is booked showing that the port can no longer cope with demand. We are developing, building a new dockside and investors have put great trust in the future of the Northern Sea Route. But there is a problem preventing us from increasing cargo turnover at all substantially in two or three years. This is the question of rapid construction of appropriate infrastructure, above all the railway infrastructure

At present, we have, I think, seven institutions of higher and secondary vocational education training specialists for this industry - engineers, technicians, welders, and so on. The yearly average is 311 specialists joining the industry from all of these educational institutions. It’s not enough, of course. But plans to expand the volume of ship repair can be complemented by some training programmes of a totally different kind, and this is something we’re working on. We have launched a regional personnel strategy
