The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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.

We could employ alternative methods of loading containers. <...> There are simple schemes for loading and transporting containers in open trucks, so we’ll definitely find the rolling stock needed to transport the entire volume of imported cargo

After fairly low [figures – ed.] for July, we saw a surge of imports in August. The reason for this was clear – Chinese ports reopened after the lockdown. On top of this, there is already a certain amount of accumulated demand. We think that September and October will be fairly challenging months in terms of handling these volumes. That said, we know what needs to be done to cope with it. <...> True, they are mainly geared towards coal. Virtually 78% of all terminals are designed to handle coal exclusively. We don’t have enough – the capacity is not there in the East, and we need it to ship fertilizer, for example, and grain. And overall, we can see that capacity may even have to be increased when it comes to wider categories of goods and high value-added products

We make the most of the ways in which we could technologically increase our carrying capacity. This year we will deliver 132 locomotives, which will carry trains with increased weight on the Eastern Range. <...> On the same infrastructure, we are trying to move more freight using fewer locomotives. We will double the number of heavy trains this year

There is a government-approved programme. This programme is currently provided with all the construction resources. There are, in fact, tens of thousands of people involved in this construction at one time, and all the facilities are scheduled for checkpoints. We are on schedule with the construction, and by the end of the year we will reach 158 million tonnes of freight capacity, up from 144 million tonnes

Today, there is a need to diversify the ports. Together with our colleagues from the Ministry of Transport are looking for ways to resolve this issue. We are discussing what can be done by the state to prepare the ports for a wider range of cargo

If we are talking East, interaction with our Chinese partners is rather difficult. We have a large enough carrying capacity in terms of the railway checkpoint, but due to coronavirus restrictions, we understand that we can not use the potential there. That is why we still have our Russian ports

The key task we set for ourselves today is to support all sectors of the economy. We want to give all shippers an opportunity to try to find ways to get their cargo out. And, in fact, all the adjustments we have made internally... they are related to this
