The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 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 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Self-Sufficiency and Cooperation: Features of Modern Political Economy
The previous system will not, of course, return while the new one, we don’t know what it will be, but it will be different. And it will be made up of elements remaining chaotically from the old one. But, undoubtedly, its elements and blocks will remain in some form

Self-Sufficiency and Cooperation: Features of Modern Political Economy
It seems to us that the processes taking place in the world political-economic system have now become a landslide. This stops us building hypotheses about the immediate future because it is quite difficult to predict anything when standing in the path of landslide itself

Self-Sufficiency and Cooperation: Features of Modern Political Economy
At one point before the latest war if economic measures against Russia, again, when, together with colleagues, we were discussing the sanctions problem and the crisis of institutions, we even developed the hypothesis that, during the crisis of institutions, sanctions introduced against one another are different, that they are an alternative means for managing international relations. […] Now they are […] exclusively a form of warfare. Exclusively, nothing else. And, strictly speaking, the slogans declared, specifically “To cause irreparable harm to the Russian economy”, so that is that, really? It is, indeed, war. I suppose it is better than other forms of warfare, but maybe not. We’ll have to see

Self-Sufficiency and Cooperation: Features of Modern Political Economy
It seemed to us that the main collision, the main dialectic contradiction within the new world system of the future consists in everyone precisely recognizing the importance, necessity and indispensability of self-sufficiency, that is, the ability to survive under any circumstances by relying on one’s own resources. Yet, at the same time, it became quite obvious that co-operation is inevitable however events might unfold in the future. So the world will be different but will not break down into isolated elements, into isolated blocks

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

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

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

Inequality: A Barrier to Economic Growth
Inequality is not only a social problem, but also an acute political one. The perception of inequality is far more important than the numbers themselves and than all the practical efforts made by politicians and economists

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

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

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

Integration vs. Protectionism: The Role of Development Institutions in the Creation of a Common Economic Space in Greater Eurasia
We are seeing a clear tendency towards, if not isolationism, then selfishness in international relations. This applies to both politics and the economy

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
