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.

We all are talking about high levels of tourist interest in the Far East, Primorye, Sakhalin, Kamchatka, Yakutia. But if we double the tourist flow, the airport operation will be disrupted. The airport infrastructure cannot comfortably handle such number of tourists without delays, crowds and overlaps

The Happy Economy: Public Initiatives for Regional Development
In the Far Eastern regions, tourist attractions can be located 300–400 kilometres away from the starting point. This is uncomfortable for the tourist, because, according to studies and international standards, every 1.5–2 hours on the road, that is, every 60–100 kilometres, there should be a place to stop and have a rest. Ideally, it should be integrated into the concept of the trip and offer opportunities to learn about that place

The Happy Economy: Public Initiatives for Regional Development
The tourist industry has a lot to offer to small and medium-sized companies and often provides the first job for the youth. This is a strong reason to keep the youth where they are, not only in large cities as Vladivostok, but also in remote territories. There are villages and towns where young people stay because they see how tourism starts developing, new interesting products are emerging, new companies are formed. They stay there and arrange unusual tours, create new sights, creative museums, begin producing something interesting

A Land of Incredible Adventures: New Opportunities for Tourists and Investors in the Far East
…The Far East is a luring brand that takes a careful and gentle approach. At the same time, it is a place where multiple interests – investment interests cross. They can transform its potential and make travelling more affordable, interesting and environment friendly at the same time. Nature is vulnerable, so it needs a careful development

Presentation of the Goals and Programme of the Chairmanship of the Russian Federation in the Arctic Council in 2021-2023
All events are built around strengthening the position of sustainable tourism in the Arctic. [...] One important point is the ratification of the Arctic Tourism Declaration. The development of tourism in the Arctic is an incentive for the development of dialogue between the countries of the Arctic region, this dialogue, in turn, allows the development of the best ways, measures and opportunities to expand sustainable tourism in the Arctic at the highest level. The Declaration will be an extremely important element in our collaborative work. [...] Our initiative is for the formation of an international polar passport. [...] Its goal is to achieve hard-to-reach locations and safe conduct of tourism. [...] Itinerary projects have already been developed, and the concept of the polar passport is at the stage of completion

Destination: all of Russia! The role and challenges of the regions in developing domestic tourism.
This (the formation of a tourist master plan for the development of Altai — ed.) will allow to fulfill all the elements of balanced sustainable territorial development: reasonable attitude to ethnic groups, to nature, to all the infrastructure that will be created. This initiative has a broader perspective at the federal level. The National Project includes a development programme for territorial tourist master plans on a macro level. The plans are to be made by various territories together in order to make ties between them seamless. So that the tourist, who travels not to a particular subject, but to the whole territory ... saw quality, interesting, balanced, attractive product, throughout the entire country

Destination: all of Russia! The role and challenges of the regions in developing domestic tourism.
Last year, which made many people reconsider their travelling plans, directed a large flow of people who previously traveled abroad inland. On the other hand, entrepreneurs were forced to quickly adapt to the constraints that came with the new opportunities. They had to adapt their products and offerings to the new requirements. At the same time, we must understand that a whole generation of Russians has now grown up with open borders. Our product must be competitive simply because it is better in quality, in service, in balance of price, not in spite of some restrictions

Destination: all of Russia! The role and challenges of the regions in developing domestic tourism.
The national project (Tourism and hospitality industry — ed.) includes three key initiatives, which, again, are unimaginable without regional integration. The first is infrastructure and support measures that will allow entrepreneurs, investors, municipalities, and regions to improve the infrastructure already in place. Why does this concern the authorities, regional and municipal, as much as entrepreneurs? Because in order designing an interesting and beautiful space, or adapting even the tiniest of beaches somewhere on a beautiful river or reservoir, requires participation from the municipality. Yet, the municipality will never have enough budget to make such infrastructure even to get ready for investors to gets involved
