Roscongress Foundation and British Consulting Company SupplyFinder Lda Signed a Cooperation Agreement

On April, 24 the Russian Trade Delegation in the UK hosted a meeting between A.Stuglev, CEO of Roscongress Foundation and Lord Waverley, CEO of SupplyFinder on the occasion of signing an MoU on cooperation between two organisations.
Both sides discussed several issues concerning bilateral trade relations. It was noted that Russia and the UK should focus on SMEs cooperation development. A.Stuglev highlighted that Russian trade delegations contribute much to Russian export promotion as well as to bilateral relations with countries of presence as a whole. Both sides agreed to participate in RusTrade initiatives including business-forums and trade missions both in Russia and in the UK.
Lord Waverley’s b2b-project – SupplyFinder – is of an interest for Roscongress as an example of effective tool to boost bilateral trade between two countries.
Lord Waverley will be one of more than 50 British business captains on SPIEF-2018 (St.Petersburg, May, 24-26). The fourth Russian Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Forum (SME Forum) will be held on 23 May 2018 in the lead of SPIEF-2018.
