REQUEST: Anyone with Russian business contacts?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
All, I'm headed to Russia on behalf of a client next week. Though I have plenty of Russian relatives, including a cousin in Moscow, we don't have any truly "independent" business contacts, and information from the FSR tends to be highly tailored to the listener (in other words, we're hearing a lot of bullshit). Since we seem to have all manner of high-rollers, king makers, and otherwise lofty dudes here, I thought I'd see if anyone has a Russian contact they consider reliable. I'm not looking to do business with them, I just want to get their opinion on some general questions regarding regulations, currency control, and other items where I've gotten widely divergent opinions. You can't talk to too many people. I will, of course, compensate them for their time. Thanks!

have you thought about the US commercial office? for what you are talking about, that would be your best bet. for 700 bucks a day they will do pretty much anything that you want, but for what you want you can probably set a meeting and spend 2 hours with them and pick their brains.

"Russian business contacts" is code for the mob, right?

my uncle, who owns a deli in Cali, imports fine delicatessens from the mother land. I don't think he can help you with your questions though. With that said, If anyone needs a container of cured polish sausage, my uncle is your guy

Dear Sir,

 

Happy New Year 2015

 

I am also trying to find Russian funders who which to invest in the Asian region.

This will be an ideal move due to the global economic condition faced by Russian  Businessman.

Please feel free to contact me for further information and possible JV.

 

Kind Regards
