No need to jump with a parachute / RBC Winner
Foreign investors treat doing business in Russia as a quest. Russian companies take the complicated rules of the game as a given and continue to search for the areas in which available funds can be applied on domestic markets. And they find such areas, thanks among other things to the technological revolution that continually generates new consumer practices and services.
The second capital amnesty that the Russian Government has announced potentially contributes to the inflow of financial resources for such investments. But the deficit of optimism in the business community is preventing new investments from becoming large-scale investments. St Petersburg entrepreneurs shared their views during the “Harbour of Captains” discussion from the cycle “Winner Club. Meetings of Progressive Businessmen over a Glass of Wine”, which RBC Petersburg organized at the Blok restaurant.
Andrei Gusev, Managing Partner of Borenius Russia, participated in the meeting and shared his opinion with the guests about the current state of the Russian economy, the capital amnesty process, and the prospects of the domestic market for investors.
