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 Effectiveness of Intergovernmental Regulation in Transforming Global Trade
Our plans – I’ve already spoken about our development strategy – include creating a brand-new customs office by 2030 that is smarter and stronger intellectually. But the most important thing is that the figure should connect the customs administrations in Russia, and not only in Russia, with our partners abroad and within the Russian Federation […] The more the customs sphere is saturated with numbers, the more transparency and mutual trust there is in this area. We want to enrol artificial intelligence as a permanent service in our Russian customs office

The Effectiveness of Intergovernmental Regulation in Transforming Global Trade
The Federal Customs Service maintains relations with the customs administrations of more than 100 countries, and we have concluded basic agreements with 76 of our colleagues to exchange information about goods and vehicles that are being shipped. A kind of digital dialogue is generally being built in order to preliminarily exchange information. This gives us a kind of head start to check the consignments that come to us in advance. In addition, a significant number of experiments have been carried out in an experimental mode with some of our colleagues abroad. I already mentioned the mutual recognition of the results of customs control, the exchange of images of inspection complexes, and the exchange of information from the risk management system databases [...] But we must admit that for now we somehow have not gone any further than experiments. Obviously, political will is needed here. It’s important that each customs administration of each state is not very protective of its business in a certain sense, and we would like the exchange of information to be as thorough as possible

The Effectiveness of Intergovernmental Regulation in Transforming Global Trade
The Federal Customs Service’s development strategy until 2030 outlines the trajectory of movement from electronic customs to smart customs. This is not an unfounded claim. I can say that the Federal Customs Service has already done a lot of work on this issue. Last year [...], we completed a large-scale reform of the customs authorities and created a network of electronic declaration centres and electronic customs offices to which we transferred all customs clearance. At present, 99% of all declarations are processed at electronic declaration centres using state-controlled platforms. And concentrating declarations in this manner has enabled us to take further steps towards automating numerous procedures. Over the first five months of this year, we processed 2.07 million declarations, while 545,000 declarations were processed automatically, which means that every fourth declaration that is processed by the Federal Customs Service is processed automatically, and the processing time doesn’t exceed 5 minutes

Forging the New Global Supply Chain Architecture
Under this new reality customs should be smart, fast, saturated with information, fair and it should promote business. Currently, 100% of customs declarations in the Russian Federation are filed electronically. The next condition is to maintain constant contact with our declarants and participants in external economic activity. It is also necessary to build partner relations with our colleagues abroad. Currently, there are 296 basic agreements in the customs sphere. <...> Ultimately, we will be able to create a digital environment where all commodity flows will be recorded and in which any violation, for example the appearance of counterfeit products, will leave an electronic trace, which will result in immediate action

Recently, the number of participants assigned to the green sector, i.e. to the sector with minimal risks, grew twice. They account for 65% of the declarations. <...> The number of inspections for this category of declarants is now less than 1%
