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.

Logistics is the ‘New Oil’ of the Russian Economy: International Transport Corridors as the Main Driver of Growth
A number of innovations in the field of digitalization could significantly help the development of international transit through our country. First of all, electronic navigation seals that are installed on containers allow not only to track their location, but also to ensure that the shipments are intact

Unmanned Logistics Corridors: Russia is Building a Digital Bridge Between Asia and Europe
People needs to overcome a psychological barrier, when they are on the road, and right next to them there is a truck or a taxi with no one in the driver’s seat

Unmanned Logistics Corridors: Russia is Building a Digital Bridge Between Asia and Europe
We are making a lot of efforts not only in the experimental legal regime, but also to adopt the law on self-driving and highly automated vehicles. First of all, it is the digitalization of all our federal highways, so that they have a digital infrastructure and means of communication for the unmanned vehicles

Unmanned Logistics Corridors: Russia is Building a Digital Bridge Between Asia and Europe
There is a psychological barrier. In Tatarstan, I have already traveled in a self-driving taxi, where the steering wheel turns on its own, with no one behind the wheel. It is somewhat like the transition from horse power to cars. Once upon a time in England there was a law that a person with a lantern must loudly warn the pedestrians about the approaching car without horses

Unmanned Logistics Corridors: Russia is Building a Digital Bridge Between Asia and Europe
I believe that drones will fit into our lives organically. This is going to entail multiple effects for the economy. An unmanned vehicle does not drink, it does not sleep, it needs no rest, it needs no blood pressure control before going on the road. We believe, all of this will decrease the costs of transportation by at least 15%, which in turn will entail a decrease in the ultimate cost of goods. An unmanned vehicle does not break the traffic rules, it does not go over the speed limit. The percentage of accidents on our roads will go down significantly, and the rates of mortality and injuries will go down as well, which will be good for demographics in our country

Unmanned Logistics Corridors: Russia is Building a Digital Bridge Between Asia and Europe
The Russian Ministry of Transport of was the first among government institutions in the world to tackle this breakthrough subject: the unmanned technology, and not only on highways, but in all types of transport. We have several air transport projects, such as drones for the Russian Post. There is an idea of autonomous navigation, and we want to launch the first project between the ports of Kaliningrad and Ust-Luga. There are projects in railways as well, the first one will probably be the unmanned Lastochka train

The Digital Breakthrough in Russian Transport: Quick Wins for the State and Business
Transport is the economic fibre of the country. We can’t move forward without developing and digitalizing transport. […] Unmanned vehicles are the biggest breakthrough initiative. Whether we like it or not, I think that all types of transport will become unmanned in the next ten years. [...] We hope that by the end of 2023 or, perhaps, in the first quarter of 2024, we will already be able to launch unmanned cargo traffic on the M-11 highway. Of course, we won’t limit ourselves to that. […] A drone doesn’t break the rules and doesn’t need to rest. […] Another one of our initiatives is a green digital corridor for passengers. I hope that in the next two or three years you won’t have to present your passport or boarding pass when boarding a plane, train, or other mode of transport. […] Your face will be your passport, your ticket, and your boarding pass. The third initiative is seamless freight logistics. [...] Freight carriers will finally be able to issue a waybill electronically. […] This year we plan to launch a situational information centre of the Ministry of Transport built on the most modern standards. Based on this model, I think similar situational centres will appear in all regions and even, perhaps, in municipalities by 2030. Another one of our initiatives is digitalization for transport security and the use of artificial intelligence systems to prevent all kinds of unauthorized interference in the transport industry. We hope that it will be much safer to travel around the country. And the last initiative is digital twins for transport infrastructure facilities
