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.

Digital Monopolies and Cyber Threats: The Clash between Platforms and National Governments
All over the world, there is a demand for the “landing” of foreign IT platforms, since in most cases they do not have a local office in a particular country where they operate and make a profit. And the government cannot force them to comply with the national legislation. This kind of work on “landing” of tech platforms and forcing them to open official representations and offices is in progress in many countries, in Europe. Turkey’s experience is indicative: last year they passed a law which allowed for the leading foreign tech platforms, such as Facebook and Amazon, to be fined millions of dollars. This experience was fully taken into account in our country when we developed and adopted the law on the “landing” of foreign IT platforms

Digital Monopolies and Cyber Threats: The Clash between Platforms and National Governments
The platforms take on the right to make politically motivated decisions about the content they do not like.

Expanding the Possibilities of Digital Development for the Youth
In many countries and integrated associations, there are self-regulatory alliances where businesses come together and are committed to protecting children online. This experience exists in the European Union as well. […] A few weeks ago, at a Russian Internet forum, an initiative was announced by the business community to create an alliance to protect children online.

Expanding the Possibilities of Digital Development for the Youth
There is a somewhat alarming trend in that, unfortunately, the level of digital literacy among young people is slightly decreasing. According to the latest digital test from 2021, the audience from age 14 to 17, adolescents, as well as young people aged 18 to 24 are especially susceptible to this

Expanding the Possibilities of Digital Development for the Youth
Research shows that every Russian spends an average of seven hours a day online, i.e., a full working day. And I’m sure this figure is much higher for young people. […] All the problems that have just been voiced are absolutely relevant and concern young people. Destructive content is being distributed, and we’re talking not only about illegal content, but also about such ugly things as cyberbullying and trash content. There are also concerns about data safety
