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.

Creative Industries, Domestic Tourism and Regional Investment. New Opportunities for Impressions Economy
In addition to the price, there is also the cost of travel and quality food at an affordable price. These are barriers, and they are not changing a great deal, despite the fact that our domestic tourism market is developing. They are staying the same. So it is on these barriers that we need to be focussing

Creative Industries, Domestic Tourism and Regional Investment. New Opportunities for Impressions Economy
The incentive to travel, including to non-tourist destinations – we are not talking about St. Petersburg or Sochi – does exist. But alas, there are naturally also barriers to this that we shouldn’t forget about. And at present, the main one is the cost. We all know that the ratio of cost to pleasure and effect often weighs against the Russian offering on the tourism market. Two thirds of those polled say that it is the high cost that holds them back. All the other objections are raised far less frequently, and can clearly be easily overcome

Naturally, we know that the government is helping to develop the domestic tourism market. It is deploying various measures, the most well-known of which is probably the cashback programme. As yet, alas, not everyone has made use of it. In 2021, at the end of the tourist season, only 2% of those polled told us that they had taken advantage of it. Why is that? Is it because of a lack of awareness, or the complexity of the paperwork, or the fact that the quotas run out quickly? Probably all of the above

Creative Industries, Domestic Tourism and Regional Investment. New Opportunities for Impressions Economy
Three quarters of those polled say that they would like to visit not only those fabulous locations that everyone knows, but also special places that might not be all that popular and well-known but that nevertheless have some attractive features. This level of interest is fairly high in all the age groups, but naturally reaches its peak in the youngest group – 18–24

Creative Industries, Domestic Tourism and Regional Investment. New Opportunities for Impressions Economy
Our outlook is positive: 75% of those polled are happy to entertain the idea of holidaying in Russia, even if there were opportunities to go abroad – which are limited right now

How Can Volunteers Help Develop the Far East?
We asked which areas need volunteers most. In the first place, of course, comes the support of socially vulnerable groups of the population (46%), second – environmental protection (23%), third – helping people in difficult life situations (22%), then comes healthy lifestyle (19%), and last one in the top five is the development of urban environment (18%). <...> 19%, or about 22 million people across the country, say they are ready to participate in a variety of volunteer initiatives. Another 49% say they are ready to consider it. The potential is enormous
