TREVOSE, Pa., June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


Russia is an ever-tempting market for new and expanding business ventures, and Russian and foreign partners continue to seek ways to enhance cooperation and mutual understanding. The largest country in the world, Russia is gaining importance as a target for foreign investment, especially in the areas of mining, agriculture, and manufacturing. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, one-third of all business and convention travel in Eastern Europe is to Russia, and travel to the country overall is increasing as well.

Despite these opportunities, risks still remain. What are the health and security concerns when it comes to doing business in Russia? What challenges do organizations face in sending travelers and expatriates to the country? What are the best practices to ensure Duty of Care?

This webinar – the last of the four-part series investigating the BRIC countries – will answer these questions and more. Our on-the-ground experts will give the basics of protecting the health, safety and well-being of your employees when it comes to doing business in Russia.
