As a main rule, foreign direct investments are not driven by costs savings considerations but by the need to assure access to the Russian market. However, exceptions are typically seen in investment in R&D facilities as well as product development, where enterprises can take advantage of highly skilled Russian engineers and scientists in different sectors.
We have long experience in assisting enterprises in establishing production facilities in Russia, covering parts of or the whole process from the pre-analysis to the hiring of executives and other staff, and the start-up of the facility itself.
Screening of oblasts and geographical locations is an important part of the process, where we also look into possible partners and suppliers, as well as financial and tax initiatives from the regions. We will assure meetings with the relevant Governors and other top officials and in general facilitate the contacts to necessary, locally established service providers.
