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 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

Aviation Accessibility of the Far East in Times of Global Turbulence
We are implementing a project to set up production of Baikal aircraft in Komsomolsk‑on‑Amur. So, the aircraft which will fly in the Far East and support local aviation routes and local transportation will be manufactured in the Far East and maintained in the Far East. <...> At the behest of [Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury – ed.] Trutnev, we are drawing up a comprehensive regional aviation programme for the Far East. This will incorporate every stage and process related <...> to these aircraft [the Baikal – ed.] and operating them. That covers everything from training pilots and running training centres, to airfields. We understand that we need to modernize our Soviet-era airfields. We already envisage more than 105 aircraft operating along routes in the Far East. In order to achieve this, we will need to repair at least 280 airfields

Russia – India
Over 2,700 investment projects worth RUB 6.5 trln are now being implemented in the Far East. Indian business is represented with just 3 projects worth RUB 1.2 bln. There is a huge development potential for our countries and companies. We are ready to support Indian investors any time and help them implement projects both in the Far East or in Russia in general. We are ready to come up with conditions that will ensure fast and comfortable creation of industrial operations

Far East Concession Programme: First Results and Future Prospects
We envisaged the Far East Concession to be a development tool which would boost private investment for both industry and social infrastructure. <...> However, it has unfortunately morphed into a tool used to address urgent issues in a region. By this I mean we occasionally began to see facilities appear which previously existed in industry programmes, and which quietly migrated to the Far East Concession. I’ll say straight way that we will change this state of affairs, and will do so through regulation

Far East Concession Programme: First Results and Future Prospects
It is only through criticism and failure that we are able to improve in some way. I’ll cite a few figures – a year has passed, and I would not say I expected the results we have seen. In and of itself, the concession is a pretty non-trivial and complex mechanism. It covers a great many different fronts, and is very much multifaceted. It requires a great deal of expertise from the regions in order for the process to be set up. We have a number of colleagues here today from Magadan Region – one of the first pilot regions to approve quite a few concessions at the government commission presidium. Today, the region has eight facilities worth a little more than RUB 12 billion. And we have already set out budgets to support these concessions over the coming years

Agriculture: You Reap What You Sow
We are actively developing additional support measures together with our colleagues from the Far East. <…> Within a month after the Eastern Economic Forum, together with Far Eastern regions, we will need to submit our proposals on the promising agricultural industries and support measures to the Government, which will need to take those measures for the development of those industries

Agriculture: You Reap What You Sow
If the cost of a single cattle stall in the European part of Russia is RUB 100 and an investor gets a compensation of 25%, so he is left with 75%. If it is happening in the Far East, the cost is RUB 140, so 25% of compensation does not put them in an equal position with agricultural producers in the European part of Russia

Agriculture: You Reap What You Sow
The goal is self-sustainment of the Far East. Rosstat’s statistics show self-sustainment in terms of certain products is twice as low as Russia’s average.  Generally, the Far East can provide enough food for itself. We need to pick industries and cultures than need to be developed and make appropriate decisions

Winning in Technological Development
We are already creating special conditions for cooperation with our partners from friendly countries, so that they can localize technologies that are important to us today. Those technologies will support current production processes in key industries, including those that drive economic development within the Far East

Winning in Technological Development
Technically speaking we are the market for those technologies that companies from friendly countries have today. On our side we should certainly create conditions so that apart from simply being a buyer of technology, we start implementing these technologies and producing them in the Russian Federation and the Far East in particular

The Far Eastern Concession: How to Achieve an Infrastructure Breakthrough

The Far Eastern Concession: How to Achieve an Infrastructure Breakthrough
We have developed an amendment to the Regulation on the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East that allows the Ministry to act as a grantor for the entire spectrum of infrastructure specified in the Law on Concession Agreements. At the same time, a well-known instrument known as the ‘single subsidy’ was restructured slightly so that it would be possible to establish long-term limits with respect to the budgets of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. This is necessary for providing funds to ensure payment of obligations under concession agreements at the regional level

The Far Eastern Concession: How to Achieve an Infrastructure Breakthrough
The Ministry for the Development of the Far East can allocate approximately RUB 25 billion a year to create infrastructure. There are many projects, more than 6,000 have been implemented to date, with RUB 2 trillion invested, and RUB 4 trillion is still to come. Projects need infrastructure. Business needs infrastructure, and so do social services

Impact Investing: Does the State Trust Commercial Partners to Achieve Social Goals?
Impact investments, but SIBs, in particular, are still the future for the provision of social services for the population. In SIBs, anything can happen in the effect category, i.e., the state can pay for specific points that students will gain at the end of their studies

Russia’s Forest at a Crossroads: What’s Next?
Today, we are working on creating a mechanism via which we could introduce into commerce a resource that is not available to loggers today. To enable investors to build forest roads [...] we are working out a mechanism via which the state would reimburse the cost of forest roads, while increasing the forest lease rate within the term of the lease agreement with the consent of such an investor,

Russia’s Forest at a Crossroads: What’s Next?
What challenge are we seeing in this regard? We understand that today the annual allowable cutting rate [...] is not accessible for industrial development. A lack of infrastructure, forest roads in particular, prevents entrepreneurs and loggers from developing the wood that could be harvested. As the Ministry of Development, we are particularly interested in the resource that exists in the Far East today [...] being used as much as possible in economic growth
