The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Russia–Republic of Korea
Our biggest mistake in localization approaches is trying to limit ourselves to consumption only in local markets for production engineering purposes. <...> We are unlikely to get to the volume that will be cost effective to set advanced production with advanced processing. <...> We have to <...> finally find a sales market outside of our national ones, and then everything should work out

Investing in the Fishing Industry: Achievements and Next Steps
After the division of the Far Eastern Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Centre and creation of the Zvezda project, we had only two enterprises left: Amur and Khabarovsk shipyards. Each of them can easily produce from five to eight vessels, with 53–56-metre segmentation and the launching weight up to 2,500 tonnes. So, we have no doubts that we can do everything needed, for example, for the crab boats construction programme

Mega Science Infrastructure to Create the Industry of the Future
As of today, we have a certain structure that prevents us from opening up opportunities. From this point of view, my hands always get shaky when I hear about the time it takes to introduce innovations

Public–Private Partnerships for Charity
There should be a clear borderline between where the government’s responsibility starts and where it ends, as well as where and how we should be involved in problem solving. Some facilities are mostly financed through the budget, yet they come to us for help. To us it looks strange. We have drafted our charity-related rules and set priorities. It would be nice to have this type of document on the federal level, to avoid any question from the supervising authorities regarding the money and where it went

We have several courses provided through our college facilities. We offer vocational counselling, competitions and the Ot Vinta programme where children build models and come up with innovative solutions

The development trend, especially that for the development of internal waterways [in India, – Ed.] that take shape today, gives us confidence that the participation of the Russian Federation in these projects is crucial

New Approaches to Governance, Research and Protection of the World Ocean
We view the development of the Northern Sea Route as a key objective. It possesses unique production, economic, transport, and natural features. It is an advanced special economic zone, with huge production and resource potential in its coastal regions and on the Arctic shelf

New Approaches to Governance, Research and Protection of the World Ocean
Funding among the global maritime powers to study the ocean amounts to no more than 4% of total investment in research and development. Sadly, Russia is no exception. In 1990, the USSR had 375 research vessels. By number, it was the largest fleet in the world, amounting to a third of the global total. However, over the past 30 years, virtually nothing has been done to add to the fleet or modernize it. We are glad that this year has seen the start of design and construction work for research vessels, both for the fishing industry, and for studying the ocean

New Approaches to Governance, Research and Protection of the World Ocean
No more than 10% of the World Ocean has been studied. Our understanding of space is far greater than that of the sea. No one country alone is able to adequately study the World Ocean, nor tackle its ecological problems

New Approaches to Governance, Research and Protection of the World Ocean
It is abundantly clear that the approach to the ocean cannot be the same as the land. It is an ecosystem, which either lives in a state of development as commonly understood, or deterioration

New Approaches to Governance, Research and Protection of the World Ocean
When speaking of the economy of the World Ocean, we are proceeding from the fact that water will be a key resource in the 21st century. Note that a bottle of water costs more in Moscow than a litre of petrol. <...> Note also the production of aquaculture, which is currently providing work to 12% of the population. By 2013, commercial fishing will increase to 209 million tonnes. <...> The ocean will also be a key transport artery. More than 80% of all international freight is currently transported via sea

Uncovering the Potential of the Arctic through the Northern Sea Route
We are building three icebreakers right here in St. Petersburg: the Arctic, the Siberia, and the Ural which is already in the holding frame. By doing so, we are taking the first step towards building the world’s largest nuclear icebreakers, which will lay the foundations of an icebreaking fleet supporting year-round passage.
