The Regions of Russia: A mixed bag for investors
This is the first of three reports, which will provide an in-depth look the more successful regions of Russia, looking at economic, commercial and political factors. The purpose of these reports is to identify which are the more attractive locations for investors and businesses needing to set up operations to satisfy localization requirements.
Russia has 85 administrative regions, about 20-25 of which are significantly ahead of the rest in economic development. This report looks at ten such regions. The second report will cover another nine and the third report will cover four regions.
The Kremlin and INF Reports: How will they change the economic and political calculus?
Relatively calm 2017. Although 2017 saw a deterioration in US-Russia political relations, it was a relatively good year for foreign businesses in Russia. The Kremlin stuck by its mantra of separating bad politics from good business.
2018 will be a lot more dangerous. The indications are that the relationship between the two countries is about to become even worse. The catalyst for this deterioration is expected to be the publication of the so-called Section 241 and 242 reports, which are required to be submitted to Congress by 29 January as per the terms of the 2 August ‘Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act’ (CAATSA). The Section 241 report will be a list of individuals and entities identified as being at risk of being sanctioned in the future while Section 242 will examine the consequences of adding Russian sovereign debt to sanctioned credits.
