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.

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.

The EAEU: Greater and Better Integration
The shifting focus of commodity flows from West to East is very noticeable. This is a very big signal, in all likelihood, for our former partners, because all these flows are still moving along a particular infrastructure, which is also being built and developed. And the new ties being forged will be very strong indeed

The EAEU: Greater and Better Integration
It is worrying that we occasionally see discussions take place regarding why we (in some countries – we know where this is happening more, and where it’s happening less) need the EAEU. These discussions will happen if we do not pay heed to aspects related to culture, education, and history. Once you delve into history, it becomes clear that our Eurasian space has always existed as a single whole

The EAEU: Greater and Better Integration
The EAEU is on a very good footing. However, from our point of view, we do of course need to add a cultural and humanitarian component. If we don’t do this, more and more will be lost in translation between our peoples, so to speak. There will be more and more competing views, and ultimately, integration could indeed suffer

Partnerships in Eurasia: New Opportunities
Armenia has enormous and unrealized transport and logistics potential, but we are confident that, in the near future, it will be realized. We will really see the North-South and East-West crossroads of international transport corridors be built there. Everything is in place for this, and indeed the country will start to benefit greatly from it,

Partnerships in Eurasia: New Opportunities
Of course, we need to protect ourselves. We are suggesting to our EAEU partners that we should have common balances of the main types of agricultural products, such as wheat and sunflower oil, in order to clearly ensure that we can provide our citizens with guaranteed food

Partnerships in Eurasia: New Opportunities
We can see how the financial system, which has worked for a long time and has satisfied everyone, is beginning to fail. And we can also see that such an inviolable thing like the system of property rights is starting to fail. We can see this in the example of Russian citizens today. Judicial systems in the West are beginning to fail. And all this leads to the fact that a certain revision of international institutions is beginning

Partnerships in Eurasia: New Opportunities
Of course, we see that transport and logistics flows are being reoriented. We see how Europe is striving to trade with us. This means that we are actively looking for new trading partners in other parts of the world, and, incidentally, we have found them in Iran, India, Egypt, and China. And all of this leads to the fact that we can already see from the statistics that there is a reorientation of commodity and cargo flows from the West to the East, and this is a very serious shift

Partnerships in Eurasia: New Opportunities
It is necessary to understand that there is a very serious process of reassessment, of rethinking the world order. That is why, indeed, these challenges are constantly arising and certain things are constantly being called into question

Union State: Economic Integration – New Challenges
We are endeavouring really to organise joint development of the economies, as Nikolay Gennadyevich [Snopkov – Ed.] said. And ultimately, looking at our economies, they were very strongly interlinked. Looking at Belarus’s export volumes in 2020, exports of about 49% [of the country – Ed.] were tied to Russia

Union State: Economic Integration – New Challenges
Of course, the union agreement contained far more meanings and concepts than just creation of these opportunities for unhindered movement and work in the two countries. And, of course, there were periodical approaches to the core issue but apparently something got in the way each time

The Progress and Challenges of Integration within the EAEU and the New Development Paradigm
Essentially, the fact that Eurasian integration is generating a large amount of interest – and that is clearly apparent at this forum – demonstrates that in fact, despite all the criticism and negative expectations of the EAEU, this is a project which is developing successfully. And indeed, trade between member nations is growing. I always cite the example of two nations which joined the EAEU after Kazakhstan, Belarus, and Russia. They are Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. Note how their levels of trade increased. In Armenia, it increased threefold, while in Kyrgyzstan it grew by 50% over the five years since they joined as members. So, these countries joined, and they clearly derived great benefit from the fact that we have in effect open borders for goods. <...> That is an enormous success in terms of us genuinely becoming increasingly closer

Eurasian Regional Partnership in the Post-COVID Era
The world is developing and new opportunities are arising. And the biggest issue in this regard is the further development of these opportunities in addition to problems in the development of transport infrastructure, which would support the corresponding commodity flows in the North-South direction. We have been discussing this problem with Azerbaijan for a long time as part of an intergovernmental commission in terms of creating the best conditions for the movement of goods in the North-South corridor. Azerbaijan is doing a lot in terms of building its road infrastructure

Eurasian Regional Partnership in the Post-COVID Era
A problem that has emerged here, and just like in any crisis, and this was a real crisis, and in fact, we still see these trends continuing, is rising food prices. In any crisis, people always begin to fear that there will be a shortage of something and naturally start buying it up for future use. This, of course, pushes prices up

Eurasian Regional Partnership in the Post-COVID Era
You know, any crisis is also an opportunity. And when we are talking about close people and close countries, any misfortune nevertheless brings us closer. I can simply see this as a member of the [Eurasian Economic Commission] Council, how all of us Council members quickly grouped together and began specifically solving the problems that primarily aimed to protect our people and our countries. We took very rapid and effective decisions, which truly enabled us to provide people with personal protective equipment very quickly, and we took decisions related to the import of the appropriate medical materials and equipment. We quickly approved long lists so that all of this would enter our market as soon as possible and with the fewest number of obstacles and be available to our people

The Greater Eurasian Partnership in an Era of Technological Transformation
First of all, we need to sort ourselves out, in the EAEU, and ensure there is a unified customs borders along the entire perimeter of our external borders of the Eurasian Union. Of course, we need to work on forming a whole network of trade, economic, and sectoral agreements with our partners on the Eurasian continent. We have a number of contradictions in the laws of the EAEU and the CIS. They also need to be resolved. And, of course, we need to work on taking specific actions to integrate the EAEU and China’s ‘The Belt and Road Initiative’

The Greater Eurasian Partnership in an Era of Technological Transformation
There have been changes and breakdowns in existing production chains, the cooperation ties and sales channels that have been established, and sales of certain goods. This is the world we live in. They are being replaced by services, digital services

The Greater Eurasian Partnership in an Era of Technological Transformation
The pandemic actually played a very interesting role in terms of integration in the Eurasian space. […] My personal opinion is as follows: there is a saying that misfortune brings people together. And this misfortune that befell us all caused us to very quickly, literally in March and April, start making decisions – systemic decisions that aim to protect markets and aim to protect our countries and consumers. [...] All this suggests that today the EAEU is actually increasingly aware of itself as a single integrated whole

We look at the world around us. We look at the new digital economy challenges and realize that government agencies in charge of state revenue should meet these challenges and be one step ahead of them. This concerns value added chains – we are getting new ones now; the role of intangible assets is growing; new virtual transborder goods and services, as well cryptocurrencies appear. These are the new challenges that tax services all over the world face
