Breakfast and Business
On June 17th, 2008, USRCCNE and McDermott Will & Emery LLP sponsored a breakfast seminar featuring Dr. Aleksey Shishayev, Counselor and Head of the Economic Office of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in the United States. Dr. Shishayev discussed the current trends in the political and economic relationship between Russia and the United States. He also outlined various investment opportunities both for the Russian and American business communities and suggested the most effective channels and strategies for investing in Russian companies. Dr. Shishayev emphasized that both governments remain very optimistic about the future of the cooperation between the two business communities.
Following the presentation, the audience had an opportunity to ask additional questions about the investment climate in Russia. In addition to the traditional locations of US investment, such as Moscow and St. Petersburg, Dr. Shishayev encouraged the seminar participants to consider numerous business opportunities in other regions of Russia which are experiencing unprecedented economic growth.
The seminar concluded with a networking reception.
