Russo-British Chamber of Commerce invites you to join them for an interesting and informative panel discussion on the Russian economy as we anticipate the formation of a new government under President Putin’s fourth term. Having won the presidential elections in March, Putin promised economic breakthrough and expressed the need for Russia to make a technological leap in order to encourage economic growth and revive infrastructure. So what changes can we expect the President to implement following his inauguration and over the coming six years? What will any such changes mean for those doing business in Russia?
