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.

Export: Where and How SMEs Can Sell
We have announced the ‘Open to the Whole World’ programme and have invested a lot of efforts and funds into providing Russian SMEs with the opportunity to quickly enter retail exports. In general, the results were not long in coming. Now we have closed 2020 and saw 41,000 accounts and exporters. They are selling something through eBay to the whole world, an increase of 39% in terms of the number of exporters. When all our countries are closed, they sell to more than a hundred countries around the world. Our top exporter sold to 108 countries even though all the borders were closed

Export: Where and How SMEs Can Sell
We amended the tax legislation so that a Russian retail exporter could apply a 0% VAT rate. Again, this was all on paper, but actually translated into numbers. Russian Post first integrated with us, then integrated with the Federal Tax Service, Federal Customs Service, and now a Russian exporter can confirm the 0% VAT rate. There have been numerous breakthroughs in logistics, because there was a logistics crisis. In the same way, Russian Post, in very close partnership with us, altered logistics and resolved the local crisis

Export: Where and How SMEs Can Sell
The entire world has made a quantum leap in e-commerce. Russia has jumped three years ahead, while America [has jumped] almost two years ahead. The online export market hit the USD 1 billion mark in 2020. That is to say, USD 1 billion worth of goods were sold abroad through electronic platforms. This is an increase of 42%. For all the dynamics that we see, we talked about this a few years ago, this market could easily be from Russia

Who Will Provide Asia–Russia–Europe Logistics for E-Commerce?
Around 80% of customers expect delivery to be free. Most customers in the US and Europe expect deliver within 2–3 days of their order, as well as free returns within 30 days. In the US they tend to expect free returns within up to 60 days. It is virtually impossible to do this using cross-border infrastructure. The use of overseas warehouses will therefore be a major next step for many exporters
