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

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.

Forestry: From Raw Material to End Product
The situation is such that the passage of goods across our border is regulated by China. We are trying to fight this, so to speak. That is probably the right word. There will soon be a series of interdepartmental meetings with Chinese colleagues in the run-up to the intergovernmental meeting that takes place in November every year. Both we and our colleagues from the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have raised this issue with the Chinese side at practically every platform: 'Open the border control points'. It is clear that COVID still exists. It is clear that it will be difficult for you to work with passengers. But it is wrong to detain cargo under the pretext of COVID

Far East Logistics: Seamless Technologies in Action
GLONASS smart seals will enable us to ensure control over delivery and transit without any additional procedures. [They will mean that information would be recorded in digital form – ed.]. This information will cover both the goods themselves, and permits, so at any stage of transportation inspectors can read the information from the seal and get confirmation that the cargo has passed control procedures. <...> We look forward to all procedures related to drafting documents being completed, and to the Eurasian Commission taking the decisions needed to launch this process

Far East Logistics: Seamless Technologies in Action
It would possibly be worth employing dry port technology [the use of a land transport and logistics terminal offering a direct connection to a seaport through specially organized transport infrastructure for the purposes of processing goods and customs clearance – ed.]. In addition, it would be worth looking at ways of reducing the time containers stay in ports. These measures would lead to an increase in container turnaround and boost port capacity

Far East Logistics: Seamless Technologies in Action
We see there being a risk of there being a situation similar to what happened last year, when there was not enough capacity, and ships were anchored for several days waiting to be unloaded. But what’s more, we see there being a risk of collapse, given the trend for shifting logistics from central and western regions. That’s because we do not have unlimited port capacity. Even today, two of the five container sites are at 102–103% capacity. In literally another 2–3 weeks we will very much be at a critical point

To give you a statistic, over the past five years, cargo turnover at Vladivostok’s customs has quadrupled. <...> We can see that logistics flows have changed course and moved to ports in the East

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

Enhancing Investment Appeal by Expanding Guarantees for Business
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. Imports have already increased by 40% and transit has grown by 46%. The cost of freight for a standard shipping container in the region is 7 to 8 thousand, to Africa it is 13 to 15 thousand. It is much more cost-efficient to ship around here. <…> At the Customs Service, we try to respond as flexibly and quickly as possible to new requests and proposals from participants in foreign trade
