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 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.

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

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.

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
