Welcome to www.Russia-WTO.ru

Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in H2 2012 will definitely change the rules of the game for both Russian companies operating on domestic and global markets, as well as for foreign investors operating in Russia.

However, despite the fact that negotiations on Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organization (the WTO) lasted over 15 years, we regret to say that until quite recently only the most general and vague information about Russia’s commitments for accession to that organization was available, and the legal implications of Russia’s accession to the WTO were not studied in any great detail.

The information resource www.Russia-WTO.ru focusing on the implications of Russia’s accession to the WTO appeared due to the necessity to fill the “information vacuum” on this issue which was prevalent among many of the representatives of the Russian business community and foreign investors, as well as the need for an expert evaluation for the development of strategies in adapting one’s business model to better accommodate the rules of the WTO.
