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 162 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.

Private Investment in the Social Sphere: New Support Mechanisms
Last year, on behalf of the President, Yuri Trutnev [Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District, – Ed.] created a new instrument called a unified subsidy. This implements the measures for the social development of economic growth centres. We have identified 58 such centres located in the areas where large investment projects are concentrated, either through our support measures or large regional projects. These centres have a budget of RUB 95.3 billion in 2018–2022. We will build 480 new social facilities, reconstruct 262 existing ones, and carry out a profound modernization of the secondary vocational education and healthcare facilities. Last year, we purchased RUB 1 billion worth of equipment for technical schools, as well as medical equipment. Far East has never seen such volume of construction of social facilities in the history of Russia

Private Investment in the Social Sphere: New Support Mechanisms
Despite the fact that the economy in the Far East is growing rapidly compared to Russia as a whole, despite the decline in population outflows over the past few years, people continue to leave. This means that the quality of life in the Far East is worse than in the country as a whole. The task set by the President to raise the standard of living in the Far East above the Russian average cannot be achieved by administrative methods alone

Developing Far Eastern Hectares: New Forms of Government Support
Our social development plans include activities in two regions: Yakutia and Khabarovsk Territory – construction of infrastructure for Far Eastern hectares. The budgets are RUB 89 million for Yakutia and RUB 319 million for Khabarovsk Territory. These are roads and power lines. According to the law, if there are 20 or more land plots located nearby as part of the Far Eastern hectare programme, authorities help to develop communal, transport and social infrastructure <…> we have calculated the cost of needed infrastructure, it currently reaches around RUB 4 billion

Human Capital: Attracting and Retaining It
New economic policy should be accompanied by the new quality of life. We’re facing two tasks here. The first is supporting those who live in the Far East. The second is attracting the people to the wealth of new projects in the region
