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.

Enhancing Investment Appeal by Expanding Guarantees for Business
We reduce the number of inspections and report on their effectiveness. Even compared to last year, when the moratorium was in place, the number of inspections has decreased this year. We initiate an inspection when we are confident that there is something to inspect. Our performance indicators have improved by 1.6 times: up to 99.9%, in cooperation with the tax service and business communities. Sometimes we need to meet the business halfway and initiate a case so that we ensure the rule of law for everyone, so that no one gets special treatment and receives unfounded benefits while operating in the market

Based on its possibilities, the Russian Far East should occupy a larger share [in trade, Ed.] than it does now. <…> With the overall growth of prices for goods and services – 30% to 50% price increase for goods, nearly two- or threefold increase for services – we see that logistics is changing dramatically in the Asia-Pacific.
