The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

International Commerce Today: New Opportunities and Success Stories
One thing is for sure: our regulators do not have an aversion to cryptocurrencies, just as it was a year ago. Basically, at the very least this is something that’s being discussed. However, even the people putting forward these initiatives [to legalize payments in cryptocurrencies – ed.] are saying that this should not be seen as a catch-all solution. <...> A catch-all solution is still to sort out our own system allowing the rapid exchange of financial data. <...> I hope that such a system for exchanging banking data will work for at least a number of key trading partners

International Commerce Today: New Opportunities and Success Stories
I must have spoken to 10 deputy ministers and heads of departments. I asked the same question to all of them: ‘What went on in your offices on certain dates?’ You know, I was expecting to get all sorts of answers, but virtually everyone answered in a way that suggested that people felt positive. What I mean by this is that instead of having a sense of fear, or being at a loss about what to do, people began pooling their efforts, mobilizing, and developing solutions. This is very important. It indicates that the people who one way or another are tasked with processing the array of data to come out of the Forum and to develop some kind of policy from it for the future are pragmatic and good. This is a very good thing

I don’t think we will see the extreme scenario of all Russia banks being cut off from SWIFT by the end of the year. Unfortunately, though, as of today, as of this Forum, we have yet to hear about a clear and absolutely reliable alternative, so the issue is still up in the air

Before the Forum, I had my own feelings about relations with our trading partners in the West. These were based on certain realities, such as logistical restrictions, financial restrictions, transport restrictions, restrictions to transactions, and sanctions on companies, which are the most unpleasant thing. <...> Now, having spoken to people and participated in a range of events at the Forum, I have seen that our country’s decision makers are trying to strike a balance in this difficult situation in the interests of business. <...> This will make it a little easier to work with people I believed were not worth trusting anymore

Western Investors in Russia: New Realities
Small and medium-sized businesses have sustained their position… that no counter-sanctions be introduced to the bank on Russian truckers driving round Europe. People in Europe can still ship their goods. My last word at the late night meeting was precisely that Polish, Italian and Slovakian drivers will, on returning home, explain that nothing bad happened to them. That will trigger restoration of the dialogue we all need

Western Investors in Russia: New Realities
60% of exports that have become household names throughout the world are based on the work of small and medium-sized enterprises in Russia – farmers and agricultural producers. They will experience negative [emotions] toward technology suppliers that have stopped fulfilling their warranty obligations. This is not acceptable

Export: Where and How SMEs Can Sell
We have talked a lot about exports by small and medium-sized businesses as part of the transfer of technology: Sputnik V is everywhere. I have been travelling abroad all this time, and it’s simply nice: ‘Sputnik V’, ‘Sputnik V’,
