A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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.

Bringing the Far East Closer: Approaches to Reducing Transport Costs
There is virtually limitless potential for [container] transit. Last year, total transit through the territory amounted to 800,000 containers in a 20-foot equivalent. Container transit increased by around 30% this year [...] We estimate the total cargo traffic in the main transit from Asia to Europe and back at 30 million containers

The Effectiveness of Intergovernmental Regulation in Transforming Global Trade
China currently has a rule for controlling COVID restrictions, which vary province by province, and even together with Russian Railways, we appealed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs so that they would nevertheless somehow put things in order. Because from the Chinese side it has resulted in [...] additional control and restriction of Russian exporters on the Chinese market

The Effectiveness of Intergovernmental Regulation in Transforming Global Trade
We are nevertheless part of the service industry for our clients. And in the eyes of the client, this is a relatively new, but already widespread concept of the ‘client path’: how the client gets through all the paths on the way towards processing his cargo [...] There is no common platform for interaction among all state control bodies […] And our proposal is to connect other state control bodies to create that very unique shop based on the Federal Customs Service’s platform that has already been created

The Effectiveness of Intergovernmental Regulation in Transforming Global Trade
Like the railway industry, we seem to be the beneficiaries of the pandemic restrictions. This is primarily due to the restriction of passenger air traffic. Consequently, a huge number of goods that had been transported on planes via regular flights switched to the next fastest mode of transport – railways. Similarly, cross-border car traffic was limited

Russia–Republic of Korea
The volume of container traffic between Russia and Korea reached about 220 thousand containers by the end of 2018, with half of imported goods and about 70% of exports going through the Far East. <...> We have a good outlook for participating in two bridges: the development of port and rail transport, attracting the volume of Korean transit to Europe and European transit to Korea. Here we have a huge potential – about 3 million containers. Now there is already a certain political interest in bringing this volume from sea transportation through the Suez Canal to the Trans-Siberian Railway. Economic efficiency of using the Trans-Siberian Railway is achieved through the speed of delivery: together with Russian Railways, we can bring it down and make it 2–2,5 times faster than through the Suez

The Digital Future of Transport Corridors Running through the Far East: International Experience and Russian Realities
Export, without oil and gas and arms, adds up to USD 143 billion. This 143 billion includes 18­–20% worth of logistics expenses. If digitalisation helps reduce the logistics expenses by, at least, 2% our importers might save USD 3 billion

The Digital Future of Transport Corridors Running through the Far East: International Experience and Russian Realities
Trusted execution environment shared by the participants of the shipment process is generally established based on bilateral agreements. Blockchain, or distributed ledger, technology provides a trusted execution environment for all participants of the shipping process not only in Russia, but also for our partners abroad. At the present moment, however, there is no legal framework that would make blockchain recognized as a certification authority for establishing a trusted execution environment
