Access Russia Market Visit
16-20 February 2015
Moscow, St Petersburg & Yekaterinburg

Russia is currently in the news due to the EU sanctions regarding elements of energy and finance. In return Russia has implemented sanctions against sub-sectors linked to food. Despite these issues, Russia remains an important trading partner for the UK. The UK exported £7.6 billion of goods and services to Russia in 2013 and it’s forecasted to be the biggest consumer market in Europe by 2020.

There remains a strong appetite for western products and services across a number of sectors which remain unaffected. Due to the sheer size of the country, demand varies quite significantly from regions, and a common view is that Moscow is Russia, which it definitely isn’t.
