  • €000


This is an excellent guide on doing business in Russia, updated October 2015.  What's even better, the author has graciously permitted me to give it to you at no cost.

I like this guide because of it's comprehensive content and readability.  Whether you are a newbie in Russia or an established foreign businessperson, you are likely to find useful here for yourself and people like you.

If you get value from this guide, you may also find value in Luc's recruiting services at Antal Russia.
