Lidings’ Partner Andrey Zelenin to attend the Annual Moscow Business Partnerships Forum

Andrey Zelenin, Partner at Lidings’ Moscow office, will attend a forum entitled “Russia-Europe: Cooperation without Frontiers” scheduled to take place at the Moscow Government building on 17 and 18 of June. The event is hosted by «Regionomiсa», provider of services designed to assist in the preparation and implementation of investment projects, search for potential business partners and investors in Europe.

The organizers are offering advice, technical assistance, and services of European experts to government agencies, business associations, and business support structures at the national, regional and municipal level. List of available services covers the full range of issues of municipal and regional development with an emphasis on innovation in the field of policy development, strategy elaboration, planning and programming of regional development, creating institutions for regional development and for supporting small and medium enterprises, attracting new technologies and foreign direct investment.

Long-term Integrated Business Partnerships Matchmaking Programme “Russia – Europe: Cooperation without Frontiers” is targeted at assisting Russian industrial companies, inter alia SMEs, in production, R&D and services with business partnership proposals, including investment projects, to identify potential business partners in Europe. Likewise at assisting European companies, inter alia SMEs, to identify potential business partners in Russia.

Five international business matchmaking forums  have been held within the framework of the Programme since 2009. They brought together hundreds of selected Russian and European companies and business support organizations. A database of current projects was formed based on results of numerous bilateral negotiations between participating companies.

“As legal advisors to foreign businesses in Russia we are actively involved in the development of platforms for cooperation with foreign partners, and it is with great optimism that we note growing interest of European investors towards the Russian market”, comments Lidings’ partner Andrey Zelenin. “It is important to note that the forum is not a commercial project and its programme is designed to offer rather “technical assistance” to participating companies. There is no fee associated with participation for Russian and foreign companies which once again demonstrates the willingness of the city authorities to support the establishment of long-term business relationships between national companies and foreign investors and encourage foreign investment in the Russian Federation”, Zelenin adds.
