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.

Digital Sovereignty and Cybersecurity
We believe it crucial that senior figures understand all the risks. Work needs to be done separately to explain and clarify these risks, and ensure that senior figures in our organizations shoulder the responsibility. I am referring primarily to my sector – government bodies and state companies. They need to understand that these factors are KPIs, and that they assume personal responsibility for ensuring that cybersecurity risks do not come to pass,

Digital Sovereignty and Cybersecurity
We are currently experiencing a disparity between growing demand for digital services and digital platforms on the one hand, and for security on the other. The latter is not developing at the same rapid pace as the former. As a result, this disparity is growing, and I believe we are now very much at a critical juncture. We need to apply some kind of super-solution to markedly mobilize and change approaches to ensuring security at all stages,

The Digital Breakthrough in Russian Transport: Quick Wins for the State and Business
Our priorities are as follows: very quickly switch electronic waybills and all documentation that accompanies the movement of goods to electronic form in order to completely do away with paper. Our job is to broadly use biometrics to simplify payment for public transport, transport control, boarding, and check-in. Going forward, unmanned vehicles need infrastructure, so one of the immediate tasks is to create standards together with the Ministry of Transport based on which new roads will be built so that they are ready for the introduction of new technologies from the very start

The Digital Breakthrough in Russian Transport: Quick Wins for the State and Business
Everyone is interested in unmanned vehicles now, but we have waybills. For now, all turnover is on paper, unfortunately. These are big costs for all carriers, for the industry, and so on
