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.

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 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Fiscal and Tax Policy. The New Reality: Challenges and Opportunities
According to the forecast for domestic regional product, i.e., the regional economy, we now have a rather optimistic result for industry of 103.3%, although, of course, it was more optimistic four months ago at 110%. So the dynamics have already gone down. In construction, it is already negative at minus 7%, and there has also been a decrease in trade. What do we have the last two months? Imports have declined drastically, exports have increased, and our balance of payments has grown dramatically. We have a 75% drop in lending in construction and a 40% decrease in lending in the economy as a whole. Decreased lending means a decline in investment and business activity, and, of course, this leads to lower profits, and the decrease in profits leads to a decline in regional budget revenues

Fiscal and Tax Policy. The New Reality: Challenges and Opportunities
Now is the time to ease monetary and fiscal policy if we are here to discuss budgets. But this softening should not last forever. I would like to note that, as I see it, the Ministry of Finance is holding the bar with respect to the regions. Everyone is equal for it. In principle, taking into account certain algorithms, we understand and are forecasting our situation

Assessing the Business Environment, Investment Climate, and Investment Potential of the Constituent Entities of the Russian Federation
The competition in the [ASI – Ed.] ranking and in the investment climate in the country as a whole has become extremely tight. It’s hard to surprise anyone. I think this is a huge achievement. The point was for all the regions to even out, to smooth out the differences between them, [...] and I think we are heading towards the point where we all end up in first place. When will that happen? When we take first place together with Moscow, and I think that moment isn’t far off. We’re learning from each other, and we’re probably all applying the same mechanisms already

Presenting the Results of the Russian Regional Investment Climate Index
[Our] breakthrough is associated with the creation of the institution of investment commissioners. There is such an investor in every municipality, in the regional administration, scheduled meetings. There was an emphasis on interaction. We had a failure in control and supervision activities; there was a lot of pressure, and a large number of inspections. There is a lot of federal oversight. It’s very difficult to find the necessary balance so that there is no pressure and norms are not violated. The prosecutor’s office in Nizhny Novgorod helped a lot, they set KPIs for colleagues from other departments, and we regularly held meetings with the prosecutor’s office, and they were our ally from the outset

Responsible Development vs. Sustainable Consumption: Nature and Technology
Best available techniques as a principle originally appeared in European environmental regulation as a result of a search for balance between industrial development and environmental challenges. The most out-dated, faulty technologies were forbidden. A gradual transition to better, more accessible technologies is the principle to lead the world to a target model, namely, nature-like technologies
