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.

The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad.

Implementation of National Goals for Transparency in the Digital Reality. Open Debate
If we introduce the best practices that are used in the world in terms of openness and open data, we will go halfway in defeating corruption. <...> This is a powerful mechanism to increase the efficiency of the government and public service, and to fight corruption

Implementation of National Goals for Transparency in the Digital Reality. Open Debate
The work of the government seriously affects our lives. We pay taxes and we believe that the state system efficiently uses them to our benefit. But we do not always get feedback. We do not always see how the government works in the interest of the people

The Russian Economy Seeking Ways to Boost Growth
Last but not least are the investments into education and technologies. We are investing slightly over 3% of GDP. Innovative countries, such as Sweden or Germany invest 5% to 7%,”

The Russian Economy Seeking Ways to Boost Growth
Over 55% of our business people do not trust our judicial system, while 2/3 believe it be biased and lacking independence. <…> We have weak institutions and rule of law cannot be achieved. When it comes to law enforcement <…> 70% are confident doing business is not safe. <…> Michael Calvey situation is yet another proof

The Ecosystem of Innovative and Creative Entrepreneurship: from Education to Successful Startups
Russia ranks 4th among European countries in terms of the number of professional developers. Yet the lack of opportunities and a large number of barriers lead to an outflow of specialists from the country. Today it is believed that 70% of Russian developers are working for companies in the Silicon Valley

The Ecosystem of Innovative and Creative Entrepreneurship: from Education to Successful Startups
There are a few examples of successful Russian companies. Yandex and Mail.ru are both on the list of Russian non-oil companies with a capital of exceeding USD 1 billion. <...> It is believed that in Avito we have a unicorn, even though Swedish entrepreneurs have created it. Its capitalization is estimated at USD 2.4 billion

The Ecosystem of Innovative and Creative Entrepreneurship: from Education to Successful Startups
According to The Global Competitiveness Report 2017-2018, Russia is not in the top ten (leaders of innovation development - Ed.), nor in the countries that are now approaching the top ten. Even India and Indonesia may turn up to be more innovative than we are. Only 7.3% of Russian organizations actively use new technologies and innovative approaches against 55% in Germany. We do not even stand next to the leading innovative economies

Achieving Strategic Objectives
At the level of strategic goal and priority planning, there may be a certain subdivision at the level of the Government Executive Office. But to analyze the quality of government functions and the architecture of digitalization simultaneously while clarifying functions would be important to do in one ministry. After a while, steps would be needed to consolidate these functions.

Achieving Strategic Objectives
We need to combine a number of functions so that there are fewer of them and fewer such dialogues. In this way, I am sure we will reduce the number of government functions and points that need to be involved. As a result, according to our estimates, 30% of officials could be laid off thanks to digitalization based on information system development.

The New Economic Povestka* (NEP): The What, the How, the Who?
We have seen that via the digitalization of governance, through the creation of a state operating as platforms, we have the opportunity to significantly cut the regulatory burden

The New Economic Povestka* (NEP): The What, the How, the Who?
I would regard educational reform and investment in human capital generally to be of second most importance (regarding measures needed to ensure Russia’s successful development). For first place, I would cite a kind of reallocation or budget manoeuvre in favour of the so-called productive sectors – education, healthcare and infrastructure. Today we should regard the funding of human capital in the same way we view investments

The New Economic Povestka* (NEP): The What, the How, the Who?
The quality of state governance is not up to the challenges we are talking about. The speed of decision making is horrendous, the quality is horrendous, and regulatory practice is excessive. We need to cut the administrative burden experienced by businesses with regard to inspections and regulation by around half. That would place it roughly at the level of OECD countries

The New Economic Povestka* (NEP): The What, the How, the Who?
Competition. I have yet to hear any bold statements from the Government in this regard, other than providing support to small and medium-sized enterprises. I know how restrained the Government’s positions are in terms of reducing the proportion of [state-owned] companies in the economy. In the last year or two, there have been steps taken to increase the government’s share in the economy, including through the acquisition of major companies

We must double non-commodity exports by 2024 at the latest. We must double the number of Russian companies entering the global market. There needs to be a ‘green channel’ for companies, support, and various forms of fostering support for export. Increasing exports is the main, most comprehensive indicator of an economy’s efficiency
