The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Icebreakers will run through the arctic like trams. Seven questions about the northern sea route
For some the northern sea route simply means a line on the map. For others it is reminiscent of the romantic expeditions of Semyon Dezhnev, Alexander Kolchak or Otto Schmidt. Some will recall the two captains, a movie about the search for a lost arctic expedition, the favourite of a distant childhood. It is also a grandiose global-scale project: building of a short-cut that will not only connect the European part of Russia to the far east but will also become the transportation artery for the entire world. Is it possible that ships will run the northern seas like commuter trains? When will the project, which dreamers can only compare to the first manned space mission, begin? We answer these and other questions together with Vyacheslav Ruksha , deputy director general of ROSATOM state atomic energy corporation and director for the northern sea route directorate.
