THE PRACTICAL TRIP
ST PETERSBURG + MOSCOW
4 9 June 2006
The press is bullish about the prospects of doing business in Russia, as
are the businesses already involved.
In a survey of 158 companies last year by The PBN Co. for the Foreign
Investors Advisory Council, 80% said they have been successful in
achieving their business goals over the past 2 years, and only 3% said
they have been unsuccessful; 66% of investors agreed that the perception
of non-investors (to Russia) is worse than the reality.
Within just a few years, the biggest country in the world has adjusted
from a command to a demand driven economy, and now represents an enormous
market for companies. Increasingly, the population has disposable income
and there are 145 million coming in to the consumer bracket.
The Russia House, with 40 years experience of organizing travel and
support services in Russia, has teamed up with David Cant, who has done
business in Russia for 20 years, and is author of Russia: ³Market
Approaches². We are organizing a visit to Russia, which will include a
programme of meetings with your business partners in the two main business
centres, Moscow and Saint Petersburg.
Representing excellent value for money, this visit is a rapid and targeted
method of starting business in Russia. For those of you already up and
running, come along at our discounted rate, without the programme of
