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 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Northern Delivery: A New Supply Chain
We are creating a single maritime operator. It will be a state operator, which will provide cargo delivery by sea in two water bodies: in the waters of the Northern Sea Route and in the Pacific basin

Northern Delivery: A New Supply Chain
We propose to write it out in the law that all this supporting infrastructure should be financed and maintained in accordance with the standards. At the federal level, we have such norms for federal highways and inland waterways. Accordingly, we propose to apply similar norms to all infrastructure, which will be accepted by the Government as a foundation

Northern Delivery: A New Supply Chain
In Soviet times, there were a number of legal acts that regulated all this. There were bodies at the federal level that dealt with this, and at the regional level too. Still, it was more centralized. But in the last decade the responsibility has shifted to the heads of the subjects

Northern Delivery: A New Supply Chain
The trigger was last year's situation, when first we had several ships stuck near the Kara Gate (the strait in the Barents Sea – Ed.). Accordingly, a simple question was asked: what is in these ships, what is the volume of northern delivery, does the region need it, in what volume? <...> We could not fully answer these questions. <...> We propose to fully monitor and track all cargo and its movement, to make procurement easier, faster

Northern Delivery: A New Supply Chain
Having a developed infrastructure would allow us to almost halve the delivery time and make it several times more predictable in terms of timing of this delivery. Maybe then we would optimize our transport and logistics centres and warehouses as well

The Northern Sea Route: Quicker, Safer, and More Efficient
Despite the current geopolitical situation... the volume of traffic to date has not declined at all compared to the same period last year. Instead, on the contrary, it is [by] about 3–6% higher than last year. <...> According to the instructions of Russian President Vladimir Putin, by 2024 we must ensure at least 80 million tonnes of cargo through the NSR, and by 2030 the target is at least 150 million tonnes. According to our plan, even more ambitious goals are to be achieved. 90 million tonnes by 2024, and more than 200 million tonnes by 2030 will be transported along the NSR. This is a revolution on a global scale

The Northern Sea Route: Quicker, Safer, and More Efficient
On the instructions of Russian President Vladimir Putin, a long-term plan was adopted for the development of the Northern Sea Route through to 2035. The essential document envisages 152 measures worth a total of 1.8 trillion rubles. By 2035, according to the plan, we must create an infrastructure that can ensure the safety of navigation in all parts of the water area, and ensure the eastern direction of the Northern Sea Route in year-round navigation. This is a huge breakthrough. Today, 34–35 million tonnes of freight are transported along the NSR. In the best Soviet times, it used to be no more than 6 million tonnes. <...> The NSR is becoming the most powerful transport artery for the country

Infrastructure for Sustained Industrial Growth: Opportunities for Investors
I think... in our large regions where there are transport and logistics centres that can also be used as hubs and processing facilities, such infrastructure needs to be created there ahead of demand. And we are now working in this direction. We have a large site, Zapadnaya, in Primorsky Krai, in the city of Vladivostok

Infrastructure for Sustained Industrial Growth: Opportunities for Investors
This year, we made provision for subsidizing interest rates because initially, the interest rate went up a lot. We promptly reviewed our policy to support business. To mitigate the increase in the key rate, we promptly launched a subsidy mechanism, and it was launched in May in both the Far East and the Arctic. We provide subsidized interest rates for investment projects

International Seminar on Shipbuilding and Ship Repair in the Arctic
The tasks set by President Putin aim to ensure at least 80 million tonnes of cargo transportation along the NSR by 2024 and 150 million tonnes by 2030. [...] We have to build at least 55 ships by 2030. [...] By order of the President of the Russian Federation, we are working on a list of measures for the development of the Northern Sea Route up to 2035. The list of measures under consideration is significant. [...] It’s my dream to have the Ministry of Finance first provide us with financial resources, then have our shipbuilders ensure the order is carried out in a timely manner, and then those repairing the ship

Logistics is the ‘New Oil’ of the Russian Economy: International Transport Corridors as the Main Driver of Growth
We raised a major issue of making an alternative transport corridor available. The economy is changing. The cost of transporting one container through the Suez Canal has more than doubled over the past six months. And today there is economic appeal in having an alternative container line in the Northern Sea Route. We are actively involved in this together with Rosatom, and as a pilot project, we are going to launch container transportation between Russian ports starting next year

Logistics is the ‘New Oil’ of the Russian Economy: International Transport Corridors as the Main Driver of Growth
For the Ministry [for the Development of the Russian Far East, Ed.], the issue of transport infrastructure is a very sensitive one. Last year we could have transported an additional 15 million tonnes of cargo, but we did not due to the limited transport capacity

Overpriced Housing: Coming Back Down to Earth
We have our Far Eastern Quarter project in place. This endeavour has involved working with every institute in the industry – primarily the Ministry of Construction and DOM.RF. <...> It [the Far Eastern Quarter – ed.] represents an amalgamation of all possible tools into a single project. We are able to offer construction companies working on comprehensive housing construction projects the chance to become an ASEZ resident. In so doing, they are able to benefit from tax breaks, and at the same time we take on the task of putting the utilities infrastructure in place in plots of land. We also take part in building the social infrastructure, which is also very important – the market demands it. In return, we get a reduced cost per square metre

Overpriced Housing: Coming Back Down to Earth
By 2024 we need to reach the goal of 3.3 million square metres, as outlined in a decree issued by the President of the Russian Federation covering national targets to 2030. This is a fairly ambitious challenge for all of us – for the regions, for the Ministry for the Development of the Far East, for the Ministry of Construction, and for development institutions

Overpriced Housing: Coming Back Down to Earth
There is indeed a shortage of housing when compared to the Russian average. It’s about 3%. In 2020 we built a total of 2.5 million square metres of housing. This year, we plan to construct 2.7–2.8 million square metres

Overpriced Housing: Coming Back Down to Earth
Housing is expensive. Average prices in the Far East are 14–15% higher than the national average. We should also look at this as a challenge. <...> We are currently developing a set of tools, and could fall into another trap – a trap related to increasing demand on the housing construction market. Essentially, we could start building lots of new housing, and then find that the cost of construction materials is becoming a problem

Overpriced Housing: Coming Back Down to Earth
We have been able [thanks to the Far Eastern Mortgage programme – ed.] to build up solid demand for housing. However, we have had some teething trouble, whereby demand has appeared in places where supply is lacking. Partly as a result, prices per square metre have increased

Today nobody says that we are shifting away from coal and gas. They are going to be the main energy sources for a while, for 30, 40, 50 years, according to many assessments, but I am certain that the time the generation will dictate a much faster transition to alternative energy sources and achievement of carbon neutrality

Bringing the Far East Closer: Approaches to Reducing Transport Costs
Unfortunately, we did not transport anything last year, but we could have transported 15 million tonnes. For us, the issue of transport infrastructure is key in the context of developing the macro-region of the Far East. For more than six years, we have been implementing a programme to accelerate the development of the Far East by creating preferential regimes and attracting investors. A lot of work has been done. We have more than 2,600 residents and RUB 6.3 trillion in declared investments, of which about RUB 2 trillion have already been made

We are currently seeing growth dynamics in cargo turnover at ports – more than 4.6% growth in transhipment in 2020. Containers increased by 13% in this total volume. This is rather sustained and steady growth: the Far Eastern basin as a whole processes 223 million tonnes at ports

Increasing Russia’s Return on Gas and Oil
The level of gasification in Russia stands at 71%, but I would also like to note that, according to various estimates, the level of gasification in the Far East is between 19 and 24%. Five out of eleven regions in the Far East do not have pipeline gas. Coal generation accounts for 70% of the energy mix for heat generation in the Far East, and we are all aware of the issues arising from this
