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 163 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.

Investment Quotas 2.0: The Route to Intensive Development
There is a problem that has to do with the years when this process began, when the second part of the programme, InvestQuota 2.0, was launched. Clearly, the construction of plants can begin as soon as the legislative initiatives are adopted. But with the fleet it is a little more complicated than that. So far, we have optimistically set our target for the year 2023, but I am afraid that we will start intensively building the fleet in 2025 at best

Catching the ‘Goldfish’: Sustainability Factors of Fisheries

In addition to preserving the stock itself, besides operating under environmental regulations, legislative stability is important. <…> Any revision in this part could lead to unpredictable outcomes
