The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, 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, 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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Business Associations in Russia and Africa: A Starting Point for Long-Term Business Partnership
Our colleagues in Africa don’t know much about modern-day Russia, the conditions for business, or the skills that Russian enterprises possess today. And we know little about each country in particular. So one of the main objectives, perhaps the most important one at this stage, is information and the opportunity to get to know each other

Business Associations in Russia and Africa: A Starting Point for Long-Term Business Partnership
There is an understanding at the political level. There is an agreement in place at the political level to support business and support the development of economic ties. Now it’s up to […] entrepreneurs

The Eurasian Economic Union and Africa: Trends and Opportunities to Develop Integrated Processes and Collaborate
It is very difficult to build a business without political agreements. In any country, no matter how democratic, business always has to look to the authorities, their opinion on how much they can cooperate with specific countries and their economies, and how this cooperation is encouraged by their own leaders

Infrastructure of the Future: Creating New Focal Points in the Far East
In various developed countries, the convention sector accounts for 1.5% of GDP. The UK is a leader in this field. The country hosts numerous events of this kind, which is clearly due to its status as a financial centre. Conventions account for 2.9% of its GDP. In our country, this figure is 0.2%. Clearly, we are still at the learning stage, and are a long way away from leading nations and the global average

Russia–ASEAN
The history of our relationship, which was previously a dialogue, goes back twenty years. At the meeting held in Singapore, a new agreement was signed, the level of partnership was raised to strategic interaction. We hope that the level of political relations, which we consider quite high, will have an effect on economic relations as well

Quality of Life for the Older Generation: Programme Implementation
The society, as of today, is not ready to cooperate with the older generation, because none of our senior people believes it to be an infringement of their rights – the fact that they are not hired after they turn 50. Everyone thinks that this is normal, that this is just the way it is: ‘I am 50 already, so they do not want me anywhere’,

The figures on Korean investment attracted to the Russian economy are very modest today. The share of investment in the Far East by South Korean companies remains rather low, and we hope that it will increase

The Next Stage of the SCO Business Agenda
The SCO grows and expands. There are observer countries and there are partner countries. We would like to have a stronger investment drive. Last year, economic cooperation within the organization went up 30%. In the Russian commodity turnover about 20% falls on the SCO countries
