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.

Cultural Ties to Enhance Cooperation between Russia and the West

Supporting Youth Entrepreneurship in the G20 Countries

Supporting Youth Entrepreneurship in the G20 Countries
Unfortunately, last year alone 40 thousand progressive clever young people left the country to live and work abroad. They work in hi-tech innovative businesses. Many of them, being just 25–26 years, old pulled off an ICO and raised USD 100 million. They have creative minds. For reference, only 12 thousand left the country in 2016, and 40 thousand in 2017

Supporting Youth Entrepreneurship in the G20 Countries
Unfortunately, the level of entrepreneurial activity in Russia is very low – only 2–2.5%. Sadly, the young prefer to work in state corporations or in some prestigious major agencies. This does not facilitate development of the country, because it is business that provides the main surplus value and replenishment of the budget. Even the European countries with the lowest level of entrepreneurship are at 5–7%, but you can find double-digit numbers as well

Commercial Reputation: When One’s Word is Not Enough
First you need to win trust, no matter what you do. <...> Reputation is when you stay true to your word. <...> This is the main thing in business, and it should be the main thing in politics. Years and everyday efforts allow you to gain a reputation. <...> And it's easy to destroy a reputation

Russia–USA
Strange as it may seem, in January–March, the trade volume between Russia and the US increased by 9.4% year over year, and amounted to $5.2 billion. At the same time, Russian exports increased by 14.3% to $2.6 billion. And imports increased by 4.7% to $2.5 billion. Of course, that’s nothing compared to what we would like to achieve. On the other hand, that is a good indicator. Even in this situation, our volume is increasing
