Supplier Search and Deal Facilitation

Russian market landscape had changed dramatically over the last few years.  From mainly consumerist economy, Russian market shifted towards manufacturing and technology developing one.  Due to devalued local currency (Russian ruble), the costs of manufacturing in Russia turned to be more competitive than those in China.  At the same time, Russian market is traditionally recognized for highly skilled manpower spread across the country.

We help international businesses to screen the Russian marketplace and identify potential suppliers to meet our clients’ expectations and requirements.  In line with our modus operandi, we don’t just perform targeted search.  We make sure our short listed targets (ie, suppliers, manufacturers, service providers, et al) are open for deal negotiations with our client (or with us as client’s representative). Based on client’s expectations, we perform introductions and liaising, perform negotiations with potential contractors, provide our clients with full-fledged contract and legal support, assist with deal facilitation, advise on Russian customs issues, ‘currency controls’ compliance (cross-border payments), and many other practical issues that our clients may face.
