The Singapore Business Federation (SBF) is organising the Business Mission to the Russian Federation from 3 – 9 October 2010.
This mission will take delegates to the largest city and capital of Russia, Moscow,
as well as the major trade gateway, financial and industrial centre of Russia, St. Petersburg.

Briefing sessions and seminars will be organised during the business mission to provide mission participants with a first-hand understanding of the market dynamics, as well as business practices in Russia. Through the business-matching and networking sessions, participants in the mission will get a chance to meet and establish contacts with relevant business partners and government officials
Coined as one of the four most promising emerging markets of the world (BRIC), Russia presents extensive business opportunities for Singapore businesses to partake, especially in the sectors of
Oil & Gas
Tourism & Hospitality
Transport & Logistics
Property & Construction

About the Russian Federation
As the largest country in the world
and the 9th most populous nation with 142 million people,
Russia is well-known for having the world’s largest reserves of mineral and energy,
and also the 5th biggest billionaire market.
The country’s excellent turn-around from the 1998 ‘Ruble Crisis’ and the recent financial crisis demonstrates the country’s commitment in pursuing economic reform and maintaining macroeconomic stability.
Russia’s 2009 GDP of USD2.1 trillion ranks as the 9th highest in the world
. The large stimulus package and gradual recovery of oil prices have contributed to uplift the economy out of recession in 2H2009 and likely to further return a modest growth of 3-4% in 2010, which bode well for businesses.
Recent establishment of a high-level Inter-Governmental Commission between Russia and Singapore seeks to strengthen the bilateral ties between the two countries and boost both political and economical engagements and exchanges. Businesses from both countries are encouraged to tap on the opportune platform to drive their Russian-Singapore business growth.
