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.

Transformation of the International Labour Market: Meeting the Challenges
How will technology change the situation? Of course, there are many scenarios. Depending on whom you believe, up to 85% of people will be either unemployed or providing low-level services for the top 15%. These are horror scenarios. <...> We do not know how the situation will evolve over the next 10/15/20 years. <...> One thing that people really focus a lot on is autonomous driving. A significant share of jobs are lorry drivers, train drivers, delivery van drivers, taxi drivers, and so forth. That’s a large chunk of jobs that could potentially go away

Transformation of the International Labour Market: Meeting the Challenges

At the moment, it is low in North America, very low in parts of Europe, low in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, China, and also quite low here in Russia. And then we have a number of places with quite high unemployment: Southern Europe and many of the emerging markets

Banking and Finance in the Emerging Markets: Version 2.0
Not just banks but each company should be asking itself how to remain relevant when a tech company comes between it and the consumer. This can happen in retail, in finance or even in ordinary consumer industries where some company, such as Apple, Google or Alibaba, takes this position. This should not be taken easily because each financial institution and other companies should think of themselves as of a tech company.… Many banks complain that these are unfair rules, as tech companies are not regulated to the same extent, and so on.
