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 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 159 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.

Long-Term and Affordable Capital for Investments: New Fundraising Opportunities
We have already established two mechanisms, including the Russia–Japan Investment Fund, which is a joint investment fund with the RDIF. <...> We have also established Japanese project promotion vehicles in the Russian Far Eastern District. <...> This facility has already got more than 16 contracts with potential Japanese investors, and it functions as a trouble-shooter and a facilitator – even if it is micromanagement, we can do it. <...> Tomorrow we are going to sign a contract with VEB – Vnesheconombank – on financing an agricultural project in the Sakha Republic

Long-Term and Affordable Capital for Investments: New Fundraising Opportunities
We have been working very closely with the Far East and Baikal Region Development Fund. <...> We have a lot of financial packages which we provided to promote Japanese investment and trade to the Russian Far Eastern District. <...> The Russian Far East can become a gateway from the Russian continent to other parts of the world, including Japan and other parts of Asia. In my view, the Russian Far East is, from a geoeconomic sense, a good location to be a hub of exports, or for an economic exchange of trade and investment with Asia and the Pacific regions

Integration vs. Protectionism: The Role of Development Institutions in the Creation of a Common Economic Space in Greater Eurasia
The main difficulty is, of course, currency. The US dollar dominates, and therefore we use it. However, when sanctions are applied, then we are fundamentally talking about prohibitive measures, and therefore with Russia, we cannot pay in dollars – we pay in roubles. But if the US continues to use national currencies as an instrument of the sanctions regime, then all this will cause very serious damage to the American economy
