AND BENEFIT FROM RUSSIAN INNOVATIONS
Even with existing political pressures between the governments of the U.S. and Russia, many Minnesota companies successfully work in Russia. With a shared strong development of innovation, an educated workforce and many common interests in medicine, manufacturing, agriculture and bio-sciences, the potential for benefits for both Minnesota and Russia exists for the future. Russia was Minnesota’s 29th largest trading partner in 2014 with $103 million in exports. Medical device exports were up 57 percent, electrical machinery up 37 percent.
Join us Tuesday, February 24, 2015 for this informative session focusing upon the practical process and issues for companies wishing to establish a trade relationship in Russia, including the latest US-Russia sanctions.
