A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 159 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.

The ESG Race for USD 30 Trillion of Investment is on
Our topic is related to investment, to money. We all know about the Russian discount [the undervaluation of Russian assets, – Ed.]. All Russian companies suffer to some extent from this

Russia – One Step Ahead
We all know Russia as a country rich in natural resources, oil and gas – everyone understands that. But perhaps not everyone in the world understands that technology plays such a big role in the country as well

Russia – One Step Ahead
It was about three years ago in Davos, when suddenly everyone started talking about digital disruption, transformation, the fourth industrial revolution, even the CEOs of industrial companies began to say those things. That was somewhat unexpected. I think they did it because their PR people and their IR people made them say that. But, nevertheless, it has now become an integral part of the agenda

Russia – One Step Ahead
Yesterday, a Russian journalist from RIA Novosti came up to Tim Cook, the head of Apple, and asked him about his thoughts on Yandex.Phone. He said, ‘I have not heard about Yandex.Phone.’ I believe, very soon he will hear about Yandex.Phone and not only that

The Russian Capital Market on the Threshold of a New Era
Earlier, under high oil prices there were businesses that were just growing on their own. Now nothing happens by itself, and one must be a good entrepreneur to develop their business. <...> Obuv Rossii did an IPO at Moscow Stock Exchange last year, which is a perfect example. Anton Titov is the person, who created this business with his own hands in Novosibirsk, and now it’s federal level brand. <...> I can see that although not all of them go through an IPO, these businesses exist, and their number and the number of entrepreneurs are growing. When it is possible, I think the next pipeline IPO will be a pipeline of higher quality, more interesting and talented businesses that will slightly improve the reputation of the market and give bigger opportunities to investors
