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
We are interested in creating additional guarantees for businesses and introducing a kind of ‘Far Eastern immunity’ for residents of ASEZs and the Free Port of Vladivostok, to spare the entrepreneurs from planned inspections over the next five or even ten years. We mainly need preventive control. Second thing is, reduce the requests for documentation: they are a huge stress and a financial burden as they require specially trained staff. Make inspections as remote as possible. Fourth: create an interdepartmental working group to discuss the problems of ASEZs on an ongoing basis with the Prosecutor General’s Office and other colleagues. Fifth: consider making it possible for the inspected businesses to evaluate their supervising authorities. This may become an additional signal for them to make the procedures smooth

Healthy City, Healthy People
The Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East and Arctic has a practice of government support and the single subsidy. The latter one is used as a tool for determining the priority infrastructure facilities based on suggestions from Far Eastern regions. These are social facilities, healthcare and education facilities we allocate funds for in addition to other programmes. Importantly we can boast a certain success in this department. It is not just hospitals, clinics, schools, or kindergartens – it is also embankments. Let’s take the embankment in Komsomolsk-on-Amur that is being reconstructed now or the embankment in Blagoveshchensk

Budget Justice: Who Lives Well in Russia?
Budget deformations are becoming more and more apparent, and are now a prominent issue. The Far East covers 40% of the Russian Federation, yet only 8 million people live there. That necessitates a completely different governance model

Budget Justice: Who Lives Well in Russia?
The income model must absolutely match up with the expenditure model, but this will in all likelihood occur at a subsequent stage. <...> It is important that a rejection of particular taxation solutions does not lead to a fall in additional income
