«Русский дом» вновь станет официальной российской резиденцией  на Всемирном экономическом форуме в Давосе

The Russia House, the official Russian residence in Davos, will open its doors to visitors once again on 20–24 January 2020.

«Over the years of its existence, the Russia House has become an integral part of Davos. The venue has received a lot of positive feedback and its level of organization has been repeatedly mentioned by regular participants in major international forums and conferences. This is an important project that allows us to show off our country’s hospitality and openness to our foreign partners and their proposals that aim to develop our cooperation with representatives of the global business community as well as our country’s trade and economic projects», Adviser to the Russian President Anton Kobyakov said.

In 2020, the Russia House programme will focus on three key issues: economic development, digital transformation, and social projects. Special attention will also be paid to issues concerning cybersecurity and the development of artificial intelligence.

The business programme will include the first presentation of the 25th World Energy Congress, which will be held in St. Petersburg on 24—27 October 2022.

«We devote great attention to preparations for the annual Russia House project in Davos and organize it according to the highest international requirements and the standards of the Roscongress Foundation. Members of official delegations, experts, opinion leaders, representatives of the Russian and foreign business community, and prominent journalists traditionally take part in the Russia House’s business programme. In addition, the Russia House is a comfortable venue for meetings and a dialogue on partnership that helps to build long-term plans for the new business year,» Roscongress Foundation CEO and Chairman of the Board Alexander Stuglev said.

In 2019, the Russia House was not only a traditional meeting place for representatives of the international business community and officials, but also served as a prominent discussion platform on the Davos map with a distinct format and image. Over the five days it was open, the official Russian residence received over 1,500 guests from 70 countries. More than 150 media representatives worked at the site. All business discussions were broadcast live on the official websites and the official social media accounts of the Russia House and the Roscongress Foundation. Photos from the Russia House are always available online in the Roscongress Photo Bank.

Alexander Ivlev, Managing Partner for the CIS at EY and a regular participant in the World Economic Forum, pointed out the importance of the Russia House project for Russia: «The Russian agenda in Davos remains relevant. Russia is part of the global economy and one of the key players in the world. Russia has a presence at the World Economic Forum in Davos. This is important both for our country and for the entire international community.»

Next year, the Russia House will once again attract the attention of representatives of the international business community and official circles, showcase Russia’s business opportunities and investment projects, and demonstrate Russia’s rich culture and traditions in the international arena.
