Russia and CIS Business Services

Whilst global Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows are feeling the stress of flagging investor confidence amid macroeconomic and political uncertainty, Russia’s and the CIS’ fast growing consumer markets and natural resources have kept them in the list of top attractive FDI destinations.

In 2012 Russia’s FDI inflow decreased by 7% to US$ 51bn, much less than the 18% decline in global FDI. In the CIS region it remains the most attractive FDI destination.

68% of existing investors plan to increase their presence in Russia, and, according to EY’s 2013 Russia Attractiveness Survey, the majority of investors believe Russia’s entry to the World Trade Organisation, the formation of the Common Economic Space with Belarus and Kazakhstan, and a likely Eurasian Economic Union by 2015, will increase its attractiveness.

Russia and the CIS have many advantages for foreign investors, such as abundant natural resources and strong domestic markets with well educated, highly productive workforces. However, administrative barriers, lack of transparency in business practices and a recovering financial system often compromise these benefits.
