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 165 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide, and 154 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Eurasian Regional Partnership in the Post-COVID Era
As regards the transport component or transport connectivity, Kazakhstan is right at the crossroads of all routes: North-South and East-West [...] There will still be interaction between the European Union and China. It is clear that most of the goods will be delivered by sea, but some part will also be delivered by land, so Kazakhstan has carried out a lot of work […] both in the North-South and West-East directions.
