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.

Council of Arctic Shipping Participants along the Northern Sea Route
The need for Arctic shipbuilding is much higher than domestic capabilities. According to our calculations, 132 ships are required to implement all Arctic projects. Only 45 are active now, 32 are under construction and 55 are still pending <...>. We need to start serious work on new approaches to icebreaking and new tariffs

The Northern Sea Route: Quicker, Safer, and More Efficient
Our task, it seems, is to unite our efforts through 2035. This includes the creation of a new shipyard, which will allow us to create, first of all, an icebreaker fleet, a cargo fleet and all the necessary infrastructure

The Northern Sea Route: Quicker, Safer, and More Efficient
Will the Arctic cargo market grow? Definitely yes, it will grow. That is, there are already projects that are making very serious investments...in varying stages of readiness, and in one way or another, will implement their plans with the help of the Northern Sea Route. Do the events of February still have an impact on the development of the Northern Sea Route? Only in terms of acceleration

The Northern Sea Route: Quicker, Safer, and More Efficient
In 2021, we discussed an ultra-late voyage along the eastern part of the Northern Sea Route, and we used the word ‘experimental’. For successfully carrying out these voyages, the crews were presented with state awards. And now we are already talking about year-round navigation as something of a given. <...> Can we say that we know much more about the ice layer and forecasting than we did yesterday? Definitely yes

Investment Projects in the Arctic: Incentive Regimes
The general programme [for the development of the Northern Sea Route – ed.] measures around RUB 700 billion. That relates to the decisions which have been made. In order to ensure the development of the Northern Sea Route’s eastern direction, we must have at least five nuclear-powered icebreakers by 2030. This is necessary to ensure regular year-round navigation, and to support the creation of a strategic line connecting the west and east of the country, which will act to a degree as an alternative to the Trans-Siberian Railway. The decision was taken to build six additional icebreakers. <...> Four icebreakers will be built by [Rosatom – ed.] State Corporation with its own resources

Extended Session of the NSR Public Council. Big Northern Sea Route: New Global Traffic Lane
If we look at the last forty years of observations, from 1980 to 2020, we can see the following trends, already clearly established: a decrease in ice cover in summer-autumn by about two times, and for the winter-spring period, a change in ice cover of about 10%. […] Year-round navigation is becoming possible

Challenges and Opportunities in the Next Round of Development in the Arctic
If we take the Baimskoye field, today the conditions in which floating stations will be built to provide support are 6.44 roubles per kilowatt hour. This is actually a breakthrough [...] in the energy sector and in the Arctic, when energy can be installed in such a volume and in such a quantity in an isolated territory at such a cost [...] Now, together with the Yakutia government, we are preparing to implement a pilot project – the Kyuchusskoye field [...] We plan to build a low-power nuclear power plant in the mainland Arctic

Challenges and Opportunities in the Next Round of Development in the Arctic
The specific nature of each new project is determined […] by the isolation of the territories or the maximum distance from existing infrastructure. And any change in a project in terms of technology also helps to transition to [...] a new stage in the development of the Arctic

Presentation of the Goals and Programme of the Chairmanship of the Russian Federation in the Arctic Council in 2021-2023
One of the priorities of the Russian Federation in the Arctic Council is the development of shipping along the Northern Sea Route. We will initiate a project for the development of sustainable shipping in the Arctic to implement together with all members of the Arctic Council. Sustainable shipping in the Arctic begins with all year-round navigation in the eastern direction of the Northern Sea Route. Now work already being carried in cooperation with the companies Novatek, Sovcomflot, the state company ROSATOM is for experimental super-early and super-late term flights taking place in the eastern direction. This year they made an especially super-late term voyage – the Christophe de Margerie LNG Tanker left the port of Sabbeta and passed the entire eastern part of the Northern Sea Route to the Chinese port of Jiangsu, as well as also completing a return voyage with the support of an icebreaker. As expected, the most important measurements were confirmed – the speed of movement and the time of arrival of the vessel at the desired place
