The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social 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 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 126 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Russia House in Davos 2020
Europe-Russia Diplomacy Exchange
The lack of strategic dialogue nowadays stems from the fact that the basis of the strategy which we had before, when we tried to start the semi-integration process, not realizing where everything was going, was the wrong one

Russia House in Davos 2020
Europe-Russia Diplomacy Exchange
Abusing one’s position to refuse visas to politicians who are going to the UN General Assembly, that’s the start of a destructive process which will ruin the UN

Russia House in Davos 2020
Europe-Russia Diplomacy Exchange
In future, it will perhaps be possible to work out some sort of new strategy, but not at the moment, while Russia and the European Union are bogged down in their own transformation

Russia House in Davos 2020
Europe-Russia Diplomacy Exchange
While diplomacy continues, there is a lack of strategic dialogue. Do we need it at all? Talks about the East and West are completely futile, and the situation has completely changed. Globalism has been displaced by self-identification

Integration vs. Protectionism: The Role of Development Institutions in the Creation of a Common Economic Space in Greater Eurasia
There is an obvious politicization of the economy. <...> What are called ‘sanctions’, all these measures of economic influence and restriction are, strictly speaking, not sanctions, but acts of economic war. This is all intertwined with politics and interferes with normal development

Integration vs. Protectionism: The Role of Development Institutions in the Creation of a Common Economic Space in Greater Eurasia

A New Europe: What Is Russia to Expect?
When each country [in the EU, – Ed.] is given the opportunity to have a much larger space to further its pragmatic interests, it will be much easier for Russia, and it will be clear where lines of dialogue will be open

SPIEF 2019
A New Europe: What Is Russia to Expect?
In the coming years, the European Union will become even deeper immersed in its internal problems, the need for internal restructuring, transformation, determining its place in the world, and so on. And it will literally have no time for us, or anyone. It will be a completely closed process, and there will not only be no point in counting on a new kind of Russia–EU relations, it would also be counter-productive to an extent

Toward the Great Ocean – 6: People, History, Ideology, Education. Rediscovering the Identity
We need to educate others and educate ourselves <...> adapt our education to the fact that China is a big and complex country that played a role in Asian history, and Asian history played a role in Russian history

Toward the Great Ocean – 6: People, History, Ideology, Education. Rediscovering the Identity
We are clearly in the phase of breaking down the ideological barriers that divided territories and regions, that seemed to be unshakable just a couple of years ago <...> Now <...> there is a restoration of Eurasian unity — from Europe to East Asia, which  <...> is more natural in such an array, than the division we are accustomed to
