Free Webinar with Albion Overseas: "Doing business in the Russian and Caspian oil and gas markets; followed by a brief overview of EAC Product Certification"

On Wednesday 3rd October at 10:30, RBCC member firm Albion Overseas will be holding a free webinar on doing business in the Russian and Caspian oil and gas markets. This will be followed by a brief overview of EAC product certification. For more information and the registration link please see below. PLEASE NOTE: This webinar is for manufacturing exporters only - consultants/service providers are not eligible to participate.
From Albion Overseas: "Russia-UK trade turnover in 2017 grew by more than 22% to $12.8bn, and between January and June 2018 it increased by 19%, year on year, to $6.9bn. In a recent statement the Russian Embassy in London said: “The UK remains one of Russia’s leading partners and is one of the 10 largest investors in our country. Thus, despite complications cooperation is still developing, mostly due to constructive interaction of Russian and British business, preventing trade from further deterioration. The Russian Embassy in London supports such activities.”

If you are not currently doing business in Russia and the Caspian, or think you could be doing more, then you should join this online briefing and Q&A session on Wednesday, 3rd October 2018 at 10.30 am. Our specialist oil and gas team, led by our Managing Director, David Cant, will be covering the current state of the Russian and Caspian oil and gas markets, where the current and future business opportunities lie, the various route-to-market options, along with addressing some of the technical issues, such as obtaining product certification for Russia and the Eurasian Customs Union. The briefing is completely free of charge and you can register here
