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.

International Business and Global Values: Risks and Opportunities for Creative Industries in the Next Stage of Development
How did we survive the pandemic? At first, it was such a shock for all cultural institutions. After all, they are fairly traditional. Yet, they transitioned in no time. All our theatres and museums came up with multiple creative events. <...> We are talking about libraries that launched various projects and marathons and involved both authors and their audience. We read fairy tales to children from our homes – this was yet another example of a creative approach. We boast a huge number of projects that have gained a great number of views. New systems and new platforms, with Artefact being among them. Artefact incorporated 400 cultural heritage exhibitions from all over the country and gave residents of our country – even those in most remote communities – a chance to connect with these values and valuables, as well as to the cultural heritage of our country

What Will Russia Come up with Next?
All creative industries have a grassroot origin: it’s our people’s creative activity, as well as the creative relevance of our urban communities.

There is yet another region that should be named among the leaders – it’s Tatarstan, of course. Let me give you more examples.

Finally, Belgorod Region, which in 2020 created such a unique creative space in Oktyabr Art Residence
