The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, 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, 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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Corporate Social Responsibility as a Driver of Sustainable Development
PhosAgro spends 2.5 billion roubles every year in enterprises that seemingly do not have anything to do with the production of fertilizers – construction of hospitals, of schools, education programmes, sports programmes, healthcare programmes [etc.] <...> You realize that when you align yourself, not only are you defensively protecting the company, but more importantly, the alignment enables you to develop closer relationships with your investors, your stakeholders, and your employees to better serve your customers. You are, frankly, enjoying what you are doing a lot more, and you are reaching greater global strategic success

Is Modern Business Capable of Implementing Successful Long-Term Strategies?

Is Modern Business Capable of Implementing Successful Long-Term Strategies?
If you are in the commodity business, management’s ability (i.e. the board, the executive management, the stakeholders) to make long-term investment based on customer needs that drive innovation is what actually creates value in the long-run for shareholders, rather than I would say mere technical adjustments around cost, location of production, delivery cycles

The Russian Capital Market on the Threshold of a New Era
What do small and medium-sized enterprises need? First and foremost, they need access to capital. And as they grow and as their business develops, they need to move on to the next stage, to the next level of capital they need. I am not talking about the capital, which they access through the banking market, but about the long-term capital. Opportunities for infrastructure companies are to build this kind of ladder. It is crucial for companies and start-ups in the first, second, third and fourth round to be able to communicate with private investors, with funds, etc.

Turning Back the Clock: Political Rivalry vs Economic Interaction
Recalibration is taking place at the global level. For the first time in the planet’s history, the world has common economic values. Countries that have historically evolved as capitalist countries are now compelled to compete with other rapidly developing countries. We are not returning to the Cold War paradigm. Recalibration allows us to forget about the past when the Western economy dominated, but I would say that this is a temporary paradigm, a temporary adjustment

Turning Back the Clock: Political Rivalry vs Economic Interaction
Much depends on governance and leadership at the state level. One person can change the course of history. We have common global attributes on many issues. This includes security and trade issues.
