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

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Russia’s Golden Era for E-Commerce
Last year, <...> for example, we personally expected a crisis of sorts, simply following the laws of economics. We just didn’t understand where exactly it would come from. I think what happened would have taken anyone by surprise. <...> It’s been an interesting experience, because over the course of a month–six weeks or so, we realized that, put bluntly, we had to do something. In our case, we began to prepare. For example, we rented additional warehouse space to make operations flow more smoothly. Nevertheless, we still ended up being pretty overwhelmed by what happened. We had to restructure operations very quickly. <...> Any crisis, and in particular, it seems to me, the crisis of last year, shines a spotlight on issues that exist, let’s say, not only in our business. Indeed, the crisis not only highlighted issues in the e-commerce sector, but those in the country, and maybe even in the world. I remember, for example, how in late 2019 me and Maxim Akimov [CEO of Russian Post – ed.] were at Skolkovo and discussed how it was essential to transition to the digital economy
