Ian Harrison (DIT) and Wilson Boardman (Micromix Plant Health Ltd) covered some complex and thought-provoking subjects in detail. They provided many practical examples as well as sources for further information and support.
EMITA members and guests were keen to learn more about the opportunities in Russia and Sergei Averin, the UK Representative of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, provided an in-depth and informative presentation. His advice on where to start; find the right partner, learn some of the language, understand the Russian business culture and speak to other British companies about their experiences. Drinking vodka together will also help!
The subsequent Q&A session and panel discussion was lively and described as “eye-opening” by attendees.
