Russia / Ukraine / UK - 7th March 2014
The RBCC’s role is to help Russian companies do business in the UK and British companies to do business in Russia and we aim to promote trade and investment between the two countries.
We have significant numbers of members in the Russian Federation and in the UK and our Board is made up of Russian and British directors.
We will not comment on events in the Ukraine and, in particular in the Crimea as we are a business organization and frankly our knowledge is at least second hand in respect of all sides of the dispute and events leading up to the current position.
RBCC naturally hopes for a speedy, peaceful resolution to the current situation, based on due cognizance of international law.
We hope that progress towards peaceful resolution will be such that economic sanctions by any of the parties involved in respect of any of the other parties will not occur, as they distort and delay inter country trade and investment and could be costly to our member businesses.
Russo-British Chamber of Commerce
|The Russo-British Chamber of Commerce (RBCC) promotes, facilitates and supports business between Russia and the UK.
It is independent of government in both countries and is funded by membership fees and event and publication sponsorship.
RBCC aims to be the first point of contact for Russian companies wanting to do business in the UK and for British companies wanting to do business in Russia.
