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.

Far East IT Hub 2030: Targeting Asia-Pacific Markets
I believe that the skills should be trained within the region. It is not really up to the Digital Development Ministry. It depends on teamwork, it largely depends on the regional teams

Far East IT Hub 2030: Targeting Asia-Pacific Markets
The question of whether to provide support for the stronger ones or not. It seems to me that it is not exactly the right way to put it, because I said at some point: “Okay, we do this on our own.” Everything that has been done in Yakutia, has been done by the regional government. Now, if we take Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk for example, perhaps their starting point is low, but their team in the regional authorities is very strong. I have a feeling that we need to support Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk now, because right now they have potential for growth

Regional Innovation: How the Sharing Economy is Forging a New Pathway for Growth
So that we are clear, Yakutia is 3 million square kilometres, which is almost one-fifth of the Russian Federation, with only 980 thousand people living there. The territory is huge – from the Arctic Ocean to almost Lake Baikal. Huge territories and few people. When we started [introducing, – Ed.] innovations 10 years ago, everybody laughed at us and said: “What kind of innovations in Yakutia are you talking about? You have diamonds and reindeer, and it is fine as is.” We replied: “No, we want to develop IT.” Back then, we created an IT association. <...> It was all just guys, who wanted to change something in the Republic. So, here you are talking about the sharing economy. Here [in Yakutia, – Ed.] we have a project called inDriver. Maybe you heard something about it. It is also a taxi aggregator, but unlike Uber you set the price. It is sort of a peer-to-peer technology, where people agree on the price. Let’s say Uber in New York <...> costs USD 35 in the afternoon. If you have an iPhone 12, and your battery is dying, it can be even more. Gob job, inDriver already costs around USD 1 billion. It covers 300 cities, with 1 billion trips already completed
