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.

Inheritance and Succession
It seems to me that we all want to pass on [to children – ed.] values, and the skills and resources they need to assume these values and live by them in the world. In principle, one of the best ways to do that is to create a multi-generation family fund, a charity fund. <…> Our foundation has always, since its inception, recognized the huge disparity in opportunities, quality of life, and resources offered between large cities and small towns and villages. <…> I have always been convinced and knew that a large proportion of our population – I would say 53% – live in small or medium-sized towns and villages. And I endeavour to pass this on to my children when I take them on trips, so they can see what the foundation is doing, and can evaluate its programmes. And it seems to me that the charitable work done by the foundation offers a very practical way to show and transmit specific family values, and to do so in deeds, not words

Inheritance and Succession
Clearly, when you’ve not even inherited a business as such, but rather become a successor, you will regard yourself as someone who, in all likelihood, is not worthy or doesn’t possess the right qualities, and just got handed everything on a silver platter. <…> And if you lose it all for some extraneous reason, for example, <…> then you become that fool that lost the family legacy. So, it becomes very hard to come out well in this role. <…> Of course, it is a great deal of responsibility

Public–Private Partnerships for Charity
We need to learn how to measure result that would reflect on the change in the child’s well-being and quality of life. First we wanted to find a ready-made system, but when we failed to do so we adapted an international one that tracks several parameters of the child’s life: health, relations with parents, performance at school

The Russian Youth Economic Agenda 2018–2024
In our programs we pledge as much money for education and internship as much as we budget for the grant itself, because the opportunity to travel around Russia, go abroad, feel the project first hand, what a sociocultural project can grow into, - we consider it our key contribution,

Made in Russia: National and Regional Branding as Tools for Economic Development and Promoting Russia around the World
We must teach ourselves to sell our traditional crafts in such a way as to win the attention of today’s consumer. <...> We need to unite the efforts of the entire community around these small brands, and primarily those of the local community and local government
