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 155 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.

Russia-EU Relations: Responding to the Challenges of Time
Most of the formerly effective formats of our [the countries of the European Union and the Russian Federation] interaction are currently on hold. <…> We, Russia, have not closed a single door, we have not imposed any restrictions. All suspensions were initiated by the European Union

Risks Sanctions Pose to the Global Financial System and International Business
Earlier this year, a European Commission report was released with a proposal to modernize its [blocking statute]. There is a whole range of measures, such as strengthening national measures of non-recognition and non-compliance, the simplification of procedures to obtain permits, and so on.

And the corresponding bill is expected to be submitted in the fourth quarter of this year

A New Europe: What Is Russia to Expect?
The quicker that Brussels casts off the illusion of integration exceptionalism, the sooner our respective groups can begin benefitting from strengthening collaboration throughout Eurasia. In today’s highly competitive world, I do not believe this will be considered superfluous to EU member states, nor to Russia and its partners in the EAEU. <...> It is by working with our country and reconciling European and Eurasian integration (given we largely pursue the same goals), that the EU will be able to stake a claim as a key player in global politics and economics over the next 10 years
