After 19 years of negotiations Russia has finally gained access to the World Trade Organization. While WTO membership will certainly create opportunities for Russian businesses to export more, significant benefits will come also for foreign companies selling into Russia’s $2 trillion economy. In 2011, the U.S. shipped $8.3 billion worth of goods to Russia. Factoring in services such as finance, tourism, and health care, the U.S. did about $11 billion of business with Russia in 2011.
What does Russia’s WTO accession mean for American companies who already export to Russia or are just looking to do business with Russia? What are the real market opportunities with or without Congress approving Permanent Normal Trade Status fro Russia?
Please join our breakfast seminar and discuss issues and opportunities related to Russia's accession to the WTO with Ellen House, International Trade Specialist, Office of Russia, Ukraine & Eurasia, U.S. Department of Commerce (Washington, DC).
