The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events.

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, 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.

New SME Strategy: Challenges, Opportunities, and Solutions
We are reviewing guaranteed support. We no longer consider loan provision on a case-to-case basis. Now we monitor banks’ portfolios and track who gets the support, as well as the amount of it. Going from a guarantee mechanism to an umbrella one helped us increase the amount of support 3.5 times in 2021, with roughly 11 thousand businesses getting support year-to-date. I know that this is not a big number, but these enterprises employ 150 thousand people. It is also important that automation allowed us to see the following effect: every fourth loan was given to a business that would not have been able to get back-to-back financing without this mechanism

New SME Strategy: Challenges, Opportunities, and Solutions
Discounted leasing is among the key requests from regional entrepreneurs. It is important that on top of providing more support we plan further steps, such as fewer documents required and higher quality of services. I believe as of today they are not really acceptable. We also need to ensure higher quality of regulation for business. Most importantly, it should not turn into bureaucratic football. Small business is facing global problems now, and we need to help it

Trust in National Jurisdiction as Key to Business Security and Sustained Development
We always talk about when a violation has already occurred […] I think this is the joint task of everyone – to simply tell an entrepreneur what he is violating and what requirements exist. [The entrepreneur’s] job is to do business, and not to study the entire Talmud of requirements and procedures that must be observed […] If an entrepreneur commits a violation, he/she often did not even know that there was such a requirement. There is no intent. We believe it’s important that if an entrepreneur has committed a violation, he/she should be given an opportunity to correct it and not to be fined

Trust in National Jurisdiction as Key to Business Security and Sustained Development
Fines […] are not differentiated: micro, small, and private individuals all pay the same. It would be fair to differentiate this approach […] Often, when an entrepreneur commits a violation, the current Administrative Code of the Russian Federation has not fully specified whom to fine: the owner or the manager [...] And often it’s both the owner and the executive [who are fined]

Digital Services for Businesses
Entrepreneurs should do business, and not waste time trying to understand and translate what they can get and how the state can help them. My position is that the state should remain behind the scenes. Entrepreneurs don’t care who provide the services. The main thing is to explain in clear Russian that, as entrepreneurs, they can take advantage of a particular measure of support
