Concept of openness
Open agency is a project aimed at improving the efficiency of Rossotrudnichestvo, including through the introduction of an open government data system, increasing accountability through mechanisms of public and expert control over procurement and expenditures, public declarations of goals and objectives and reports on their implementation.
Currently, the development of an integrated approach to increasing the level of openness of federal executive authorities, including Rossotrudnichestvo, is a timely and urgent task in the field of ensuring openness and transparency of public administration.
Rossotrudnichestvo is working to implement the principles and mechanisms of openness provided by the Concept of Openness of Federal Executive Authorities, approved by Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation №93 of January 30, 2014.
It should be noted that the tasks assigned to the Agency are implemented through the use of appropriate basic mechanisms (tools) of openness in the exercise of the powers assigned to Rossotrudnichestvo.
Public declaration of goals and objectives
Rossotrudnichestvo is a federal executive institution whose main mission is to promote the humanitarian and cultural values of Russia.
We participate in the formation and implementation of the state policy in the field of international scientific and cultural cooperation, acquaint the foreign public with the history and culture of the peoples of the Russian Federation, with its domestic and foreign policy, scientific, cultural and economic potential. In particular, we pay special attention to activities on the territory of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
The Agency also actively promotes the spread of the Russian language abroad, sends foreign citizens to study and internship in Russia. So, every year we invite 2,000 people to Russia – participants of educational programs and young professionals who have already made themselves known. For this purpose, the programs “Hello, Russia!” and “New Generation” have been developed and are operating.
Rossotrudnichestvo cooperates with associations and clubs of graduates of Russian educational institutions, maintains close contacts with compatriots permanently residing abroad and their associations. We provide comprehensive support to the development of international contacts of the subjects of the Russian Federation in the field of humanitarian, scientific, technical, cultural ties, as well as partnership relations between cities and regions of our country and other states, using the opportunities of Russian Houses for this purpose.
