Why should you do business in Russia?

As part of the BRICS countries, economists believe that Russia will be one of the dominant suppliers of manufactured goods, services, and raw material by 2050. Clearly, the Russian market is growing and developing economically at a vast rate. There are many opportunities for UK companies to explore in this challenging, yet potentially profitable market. The Department for International Trade invites you to join us in Manchester to hear from experts about the benefits of trading with Russia.
