30 April 2020
Росконгресс и медиахолдинг «МКР-Медиа» запустили серию онлайн-роуд-шоу «Енисейская Сибирь»

The Roscongress Foundation, together with their subsidiary RC-Investments Fund and in cooperation with the Yenisei Siberia Development Corporation and the media holding MKR Media, have launched a series of roadshow-style online discussions dedicated to showcasing the investment potential of Krasnoyarsk Territory, the Republic of Khakassia, and the Tyva Republic.

“One of our permanent priorities is developing the investment potential of our regions. As a nonfinancial development institution, the Roscongress Foundation supports the promotion of the regional track, keeping the Russian and international investment communities informed of the best regional business initiatives. We have not stopped supporting these efforts during the crisis. Instead we’re offering a new roadshow format that accommodates the current state of affairs,” said Chairman and CEO of the Roscongress Foundation Alexander Stuglev.

The discussion will be moderated by management consultant, behavioural data scientist, and public speaker Dr. Maurice Antony Ewing (Professor, Cambridge University)

The first interview with Yenisei Siberia Development Corporation CEO Sergey Ladyzhenko is available on the Roscongress TVInvestment Platform for Russian Regions and BRICS TV YouTube channels. It will be broadcast on the BRICS TV channel at 17:00 (MSK).

Sergey Ladyzhenko will present information about the Yenisei Siberia comprehensive investment project, which aims to support the socioeconomic development of Krasnoyarsk Territory, the Republic of Khakassia, and the Tyva Republic. “These three regions are consolidating their efforts to showcase their investment potential, a unique practice in Russia,” noted the expert.

According to Ladyzhenko, Yenisei Siberia currently consists of 32 major investment projects with a total declared investment value of over RUB 1.9 trillion for the period of 2019–2027. Over 60 companies are involved in the projects’ implementation, including global industrial production market leaders. The projects are expected to create over 70,000 new jobs, RUB 528 billion in tax revenue, a 250% increase in the turnover of the federal subjects’ SMEs, and to fuel the sustainable growth of direct foreign investment by 2027.

The project was initiated by the heads of the federal subjects and received support from the President and Government of the Russian Federation. The project's main goals are strengthening the regions’ socioeconomic development, increasing their investment potential, creating new jobs, and increasing tax revenue and real income for the residents of the Yenisei Siberia regions.

The following roadshows will feature the Yenisei Siberia Development Corporation’s Head of Investment Proposals Vladislav Polunin, Deputy General Director – Head of the Republic of Khakassia’s Representative Office at the Yenisei Siberia Development Corporation Mikhail Krutskikh, and Head of the Tyva Republic’s Representative Office at the Yenisei Siberia Development Corporation Evgeniy Khertek.

The final video of all of the online roadshows will be made available on the Roscongress Information and Analytical System.

Regional investment development is one of the Foundation’s most important areas of activity. As a reminder, the Roscongress Foundation and their subsidiary the RC-Investments Fund previously launched a special project for attracting investment to the subjects of the Russian Federation. The Investment Platform for Russian Regions is a unique information space and communication environment that brings together regional interests, project initiators, and investors.
