As part of the agreement, the Roscongress Foundation intends to organize a series of outreach events: international road shows, thematic forums, presentations and exhibitions. One of the key focus areas of cooperation is furthering the series of the SPIEF field session Russia's Regions: New Areas of Growth in the federal districts. These sessions have already gained the reputation of an effective tool for supporting promising Russian regional projects on the national and international markets.
