The Roskongress Foundation decided to cancel the Russian House project at the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2019. This is due to the fact that against some Russian businessmen made restrictions and denied them participation.
“During the preparation of the project, the staff of the Roscongress Foundation communicated with many representatives of Russian and international business, and they expressed concern about the apparent pretentiousness of the leadership of the World Economic Forum, so they do not plan to visit it,” explained Roscongress.
Initially, the fact that civil servants and Russian companies may refuse to participate in the World Economic Forum in Davos was announced by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. His words were a response to the fact that the participation of a number of Russian businessmen was considered undesirable in Davos.
