This is the first comprehensive informational database of the major political, economic and legal issues that organizations worldwide need to know about in order to do business in Russia and surrounding countries. The text summarizes the major economic developments in this dynamic region, provides accurate and up to date sources on business legislation, and gives crucial practical advice to business people and foreign investors. Using local as well as international sources, each country text provides detailed information on:

Best business opportunities and sectors.

Legal issues relevant to trade and business activities, including franchising.

Information on investment laws, the judiciary, labor law, taxation, IPR laws, currency and banking, and business partnership opportunities.

Contact details of government offices, business associations, calendars of business events, etc.

Written by an Economics Analyst with a proven track record in providing business information, and a Corporate Lawyer with extensive experience of engaging at contractual level with business and government organizations in these countries, this book is essential reading for all those involved in Legal, Business, Investment and Political decision-making.
