East Midlands businesses seize chance to “respark” economic relations with Russia

Businesses in the East Midlands have the opportunity to “respark” an economic relationship between Russia and the UK, according to the organiser of an event aimed at strengthening relations.

Tim Jelley, organiser of a business seminar being hosted in Nottingham later this month, believes the event will teach businesses how to successfully export their goods.

The event, organised by a collection of organisations with an interest in promoting the export of goods within the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), will take place on Thursday, 28th April at Jurys Inn.

Jelley, who is also co-chair of the Russia Midlands Business Club (RMBC), said: “The event presents an opportunity to respark a strong economic partnership between this region of Europe and the UK.

“Small and medium sized businesses will get the information of what is needed for them to export their business or products to the EEU”.

Speakers already confirmed for the event include Trevor Barton, executive director of the Russo-British Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Gaby Henze, a representative in London for SCHNEIDER GROUP and Bettina Wisthaler, import specialist Eurasian Economic Union, SCHNEIDER GROUP.

Hosted by the RMBC, SCHNEIDER GROUP, the Russo British Chamber of Commerce and the Russian Trade Delegation to the UK, the event will delve into the regulations exporters would have to follow.

Wisthaler said: “Members of the EEU have high demand for quality, making clear opportunities for British companies to offer their knowledge, experience and innovation.

“British goods are high in demand, especially advanced engineering, financing services and rail and water projects, making the EEU a very promising market for British exporters”.

The EEU consists of five member states: Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

SCHNEIDER GROUP specialise in supporting businesses to expand into Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine, Poland and Germany with market entry, accounting, import, tax consultancy, IT and legal advice.
