Providing A Holistic Approach To Your Russian Success
John Bonar can help you navigate the complexities of doing business in Russia. In spite of the fact the Russo-British political climate is currently in a state of turmoil, the massive economic opportunity is impossible to ignore. Compared to other emerging markets, like Brazil or Nigeria, Russia can be seen as the far more attractive option. Not solely because of its massive working population, high levels of education, public and private spending capacity, it also has an incredibly strong resource base.
What John can assure you is that Russian business and consumers recognises those international suppliers, partners, friends and business that stand by Russia in the tough times and a long term strategy leads to rich rewards.
