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 160 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.

How to Achieve Carbon Neutrality in the Arctic
There is this paradox: the main contribution to global warming, as we know, is made by three countries, the US, China and India, while in the Russian Arctic, due to rising temperatures, perennially frozen ground is melting and gas such as methane is being released. And in this situation, Russia's national carbon footprint could grow at the expense of the Arctic. It turns out that some people are melted down, while others have to pay the carbon tax

Is the New Normal a Temporary or Permanent Phenomenon?
We need to prepare anyway. Do you remember V. Chernomyrdin’s expression: ‘It never happened, and here we go again’? <...> We already have experience, a legal framework, regulatory documents, experience of interaction – in fact, we do have a toolkit to meet this challenge.

Is the New Normal a Temporary or Permanent Phenomenon?
