Participants at the conference will be able to speak with members of Russian Trade Mission, experts who have years of experience in doing business in Russia. There will be an important delegation of officials from Russia’s high technology companies, along with executives from numerous US corporations and representatives of US Government Agencies including the Departments of Commerce and State. The Eurasia Center and the Eurasian Business Coalition have organized this conference as part of their mandates to maintain open discussions and to build better business relationships between the US and Russia as well as between the US and Eurasia in general.
The conference builds on the momentum of the 27th Annual World Russian Forum held in Washington on May 19-20, 2008. This year’s Forum was one of the most interesting and best attended. As Russia’s economic and political importance has increased and it searches for new relationships throughout the world community, interest in Russia has also increased. Although there has been a recent downturn in global stock markets, Russia is poised to weather the storm and experts predict a continue growth of 6-7% in the Russian GNP. Whereas the World Russian Forum covers topics ranging from politics to culture and economics, the Doing Business with RUSSIA conference will focus exclusively on business issues.
