Russo-British Chamber of Commerce
The Russo-British Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit company that has worked to promote trade and cooperation between the UK and Russia since 1916. It helps business people in both countries find trading partners and investment opportunities and represents the interests of its members, who number about 400 and range in size from very large corporates to individual entrepreneurs.
Now in its Centenary Year, the RBCC aims to be the first point of contact for British companies looking to develop their business activities in Russia and for Russian companies and entrepreneurs wanting to invest and do business in the UK.
The Chamber is proud to have a bilateral structure and ethos. It has offices in London, Moscow and St Petersburg, which are staffed by bilingual teams with extensive experience of helping those trading and investing in both directions. The offices provide up-to-date advice and market-entry support over the telephone, in meetings, through the website, a quarterly printed Bulletin and e-newsletters. Topical events, ranging from informal Networking evenings to full-scale Conferences, are regularly organised in all three locations and the Chamber also reaches out into regional centres in UK and Russia to provide information and guidance on market approaches.
The RBCC is governed by a high-level Board of Directors, who between them have many decades` experience of doing business between the UK and Russia. The Chamber is independent of government, but enjoys good and productive working relationships with the British Embassy and Consulates in Russia, UKTI, the Russian Embassy in London, the Russian Trade Delegation, the Russian Federation Chamber of Commerce and Industry and many other business organisations.
