A series of meetings were convened in Russia between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Roscongress Foundation, the RC-Investments Fund, the Russian Investment Agency, and the United Nations Technology Bank for Least Developed Countries (LDCs). Representatives from these entities explored the opportunities for joint cooperation during international congress and exhibition events in Russia and abroad, with a special focus on the Russia–Africa Partnership Forum and the Russia–Africa Summit in 2022. The Roscongress Foundation and the UN Technology Bank further decided to sign a cooperation agreement in the future and to set up a working group to support joint activities including exchange programmes for innovation and research, state-of-the-art technology, and expertise in several scientific areas of mutual interest. Through this cooperation, the UN Technology Bank aims to help the 46 LDCs supported by the bank.
