There is little doubt that Russia has become increasingly welcoming to foreign investment and private enterprise over the last two decades.
It has proved to be an expanding market for Western exports. But its own resources, its agricultural and industrial might and its mixed economy – part state-owned, part private – have provided many business opportunities to both those within and outside its borders. Its oil and gas industries are vast and the size of the country, the rapid development of its markets and its abundance of other natural resources make it an attractive proposition for those looking to trade or invest.
Its banking and retail sectors are developing, while its transport needs and its markets for utilities are thriving. The likes of engineering, metallurgy and processing of its resources are areas where foreign involvement can prove mutually beneficial.
