Export to Russia. Spirit of progress in Uzbekistan.
Export of Austrian goods to Russia continues to grow. Despite the fact that the export volume has not yet reached significant heights, as it was before the crisis, the current situation in Russia opens new opportunities for Austrian companies in a wide variety of industries.
Lars Flottrong, Partner, SCHNEIDER GROUP, will talk about current trends in waste management, energy supply, food and agriculture, and chemicals and pharmaceuticals. In addition, he will discuss a new labeling requirement that applies not only to medicines, that has created numerous difficulties for the manufacturing industry.
Another topic of the event will be export opportunities to Uzbekistan. Christopher Schagerl, Director, SCHNEIDER GROUP, will talk about the opportunities that appeared after the country opened itself to foreign investors from various industries.
Martin Hummer, Tax consultant, ICON Wirtschaftstreuhand GmbH, will present the legal and tax aspects to help Austrian companies avoid risks.
Andreas Schwabe, Senior Economist and Director, Raiffeisen Bank International will talk about currency trends and prospects for key countries.
When it comes to doing business in the region, it is very important not to forget about political risk and stability. Johannes Leitner, Managing Partner, LM Political Risk and Strategy Advisory, will provide you with relevant risk assessments.
To succeed in the market, a number of factors are necessary for success and achieving goals. Backaldrin is an example of how it works in practice. The company from Upper Austria is well represented in the market, including its own production in Russia. Member of the Executive Council and Honorary Consul of the Russian Federation for Upper Austria, Wolfang Mayer, will show how this concept can be successfully implemented in practice.
