Doing Business In Russia

Country Overview

Russia is the UK's fastest-growing major export market and the third-largest export market outside Europe and North America, with favourable cross-sector opportunities, some unique in scale. The government's economy modernisation and infrastructure development agenda, underpinned by 140 million consumer's appetite for quality services and goods, produces a need for international expertise and products.

UK exports to Russia in 2011 increased by 39% from 2010, and equalled £4.78 billion. Since 2001 UK-Russia trade has been growing by an average of 21% year on year.


About This Guide

This guide aims to provide a route map of the way ahead, together with signposts to other sources of help.

The main objective of this Doing Business in Russia Guide is to provide you with basic knowledge about Russia; an overview of its economy, business culture, potential opportunities and to identify the main issues associated with initial research, market entry, risk management and cultural and language issues.

We do not pretend to provide all the answers in the guide, but novice exporters in particular will find it a useful starting point. Further assistance is available from the UK Trade & Investment team in Russia. Full contact details are available in this guide.
