«Women’s entrepreneurship is a specific domain. In general, women entrepreneurs represent the SME segment, and this is usually the production of custom-made goods and services. Today, women’s entrepreneurship is essential to the world. Of course, the state must support them. After all, these are new jobs, development of social services, and additional opportunities for the local budget. However, women also represent big business. At times, business projects implemented by Russian women are worthy of admiration. Here it would be appropriate to talk about export opportunities. The REC sets up the most favourable conditions, developing new programs, initiatives and special systems for subsidising the costs for exporting entrepreneurs. Women exporters create a special export-focused realm in Russia,» said Vera Podguzova, managing director for external communications at the REC Group.

The Roscongress Foundation is the operator of the Forum. In line with an order issued by the Government of the Russian Federation, the Foundation was appointed the sole services provider of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation for the organisation and running of the event.
