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 160 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.

Enhancing Investment Appeal by Expanding Guarantees for Business
Russia 20 years ago and Russia today are two different countries. American companies working here [note that Ed.] the rules of the game are clearer, the overall situation is much more stable. There is progress and there is much to hope for. <…> But when major business risk comes along with personal risk of criminal prosecution, entrepreneurs choose to stay away. Another thing is, there are examples of how easily private property can be lost. There is a possibility for a different, protective approach: to subject to arrest and confiscation of property only in the rarest of cases. If the prosecutor’s office could look into it and bring such precedents to a minimum, the investment climate in Russia could benefit from it

Russia–North America
Despite the COVID epidemic last year, the 160 American companies we received results from invested USD 96 billion, which is more than two years ago. <...> This is a proof that we already have friendships developing, friendships through business and business ties. It is a special kind of friendship that will overcome all the problems

This year, the US presence at the Forum is the second largest after China. We did it without any support from the government. <…> USD 85 billion worth of US investment are now employed in Russia. It is a fairly good result. Extra USD 1.6 billion are planned to be invested this year. <…> Despite the problems, our relations are broad and deep

Investing in Russia’s Future: How Can National Projects Become Attractive to Investors?
They [the member companies of the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia, – Ed.] will get involved and will invest. If there is a big project and you need to supply goods and comply with a certain level of localization, this level of localisation will be implemented

We are pleased that this year, like in the past, the American delegation at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum is the largest. Which is surprising, if you look at the official statistics on the volume of business investment. It is rather strange how businesses can achieve such results with such small investment

It's More Than Just Football: Realizing the Opportunities of World Cup 2018

Russia–USA Bilateral Relations: One Year on
“The media unfortunately is focused on attention: they like attention and they talk about what gets attention. When the media stops talking, we start noticing some positive things happening. And may be the catalyst for that is when the politicians calm down. But I think the media is more of a reflection than a leader,”

Russia–USA Bilateral Relations: One Year on
“The closer you are to Russia, the deeper you get into the fine print of what the sanctions say, and the more you operate within the framework they define in enormous detail. The further you are from Russia, the closer you are to the headline, and the headline is simple: Russia under sanctions. So that’s a big hurdle to jump for people who haven’t been in Russia. Now, any big company that is a major participant in any industry will have to consider Russia as a big market, and they do. My advice to those companies is: take a look at your plans, take them off the shelf, and maybe don’t make a big deal, but maybe take a look at Russia. There are people who are willing to talk to you about it. Tough sell, but that’s the pitch,”

“While the American companies continue to invest, while they continue to do business, they don’t talk about it. They are afraid that the important relationships may be damaged, so they’re very careful about what they say and how they say it,”
