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

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.

Rental Housing – Development Opportunities
A decision has been made to expand the ASEZ conditions for developers. Now developers can become residents and get all the preferences: a free land plot from the corporation, an infrastructure to the site, and the opportunity to build comfortable neighborhood development projects by reducing the cost of entry. They will also have a chance to transfer part of the housing to regions at the cost of the Ministry of Construction, involving this fund for social needs

Rental Housing – Development Opportunities
The development of the Far East began at a rapid pace in 2013, ever since the decision was made to create the Ministry. During this time, the federal laws on the Free Port of Vladivostok, the territories of advanced development, and these special preferential regimes have allowed a number of enterprises to create new production facilities <...> During this time, more than 2,700 new enterprises, residents of FPV and ASEZs were created, and these enterprises created 105,000 new jobs during this period. And we are waiting for another 50,000 jobs by 2024 under binding agreements with the residents <...> All these unique enterprises in the Far East require unique specialists. And for them to come to the Far East, to work in the conditions that do not look like a shift crew <...> it is important to create conditions that can attract these professionals, can help implement these enterprises, and possibly make them fall in love with the region, keep these people in the territory, and allow them to develop these enterprises

Rental Housing – Development Opportunities
Polls show that 60% of the Russian Federation's residents are ready to come and work in the Far East for different time periods: a year, two years, someone is ready to consider long-term prospects for development in the territory. But they expect certain conditions to be created: a place to live, social infrastructure. This is why we see rental housing as an important solution to the second stage of the development of the Far East. The first stage is to rev up the economic engine, which has created these jobs and launched the economy. Rental housing is key to the entire Far East development cycle we are working on

Russia’s Mining Industry and the Eastern Vector: Production, Processing, Sales and Delivery, Technological Sovereignty, Personnel and New Projects
More than 400 companies in the Far East are engaged in mining and processing, with more than 120,000 people involved today. We see that already in the next four years an additional 25,000 people will be needed for those enterprises that are currently in the investment stage, as well as for the development of existing ones. The need for personnel is enormous

Russia’s Mining Industry and the Eastern Vector: Production, Processing, Sales and Delivery, Technological Sovereignty, Personnel and New Projects
A lot of investment has come in: the industry is developing. But, frankly speaking, the Far East has failed to create a mining school, a centre of expertise and competence. Specialists come and leave. Engineers come, start a company and leave. People of working professions pass through the Far East without accumulating expertise. We are still very dependent on large federal educational institutions in this sense. It seems to have accumulated that number of enterprises, recorded growing demand in today’s geopolitical situation, which has shifted the centre of gravity to the Far East

Creative Far East: A Strategy for Creative Diversity
In education, it is probably too early to talk about key breakthroughs, but there are two serious areas in which we are making progress. Five cities in the Russian Far East have formulated their ambitions and submitted competitive projects to the Ministry of Education and Science. I hope that we will get to see the first results in October, so that some of them will receive support and create new educational infrastructure, which is also a serious prerequisite for developing creative economies. The second is that a decision has already been made on education: last week, the Government signed a decree on a separate programme for developing higher education in the Far East. This is a competition in which all higher education institutions in the Far East, regardless of their size or direction, including our cultural universities, are participating, reflecting on their development strategies, competing in terms of meaning and receiving federal support, and implementing projects, including in creative economies

Creative Far East: A Strategy for Creative Diversity
There is a number of prerequisites in terms of developing the creative economy in the Far East in such keys that allow us to build on them. First of all, it is the community, the teams that have formed in the regions, and the regions themselves determine their own points of growth. Secondly, it is the rich cultural code of the Far East that produces the narratives associated with a lot of creative economy. Thirdly, it is our territorial features, where our export potential and opportunities to sell the products of the creative economy to the huge Asia Pacific market helps us. And there are virtually no barriers to export. The fourth prerequisite is that the Far East has traditionally been an area of experimentation. We are always allowed to do a little more here than in other territories. And the results that show up in the Far East are further replicated throughout the country

The Far East: How Can Socially Conscious Business, Non-Profit Organizations, and Media Partner to Improve the Quality of Life?
We have reached a point characterized by problematization and attempts to develop a solution. We are looking at how we can work together to strengthen the association, share knowledge, and perhaps establish a coordinating platform for the non-profit sector. <...> We are also thinking about how we can make each other stronger within this established community of non-profit organizations in the Far East

Human Development in the Far East: The Key Asset Is People
We have applicants leaving the Far East. The children graduate from high school and decide not to study in the Far East. And 40 percent of eleventh-graders enter universities outside [the region, – Ed.]. Some leave already in the seventh or eighth grade to prepare for enrollment. This is a serious challenge for us, because it washes away the quality of human capital – these are the most talented children who do not see their future in the Far East

Human Development in the Far East: The Key Asset Is People
There is a fast-growing economy, there is a demand for high-quality human capital and its development. There is a large number of people who are ready to participate in this. It seems to me that the key thing here is to synchronize these efforts so that these ‘cogs’ start working together as a single coherent mechanism, and then everything will work out
