What is the RBCC?
The Russo-British Chamber of Commerce (RBCC) is a not-for-profit membership organisation
established to foster and maintain strong business links between Russia and the UK. Since its
inception in 1916 the Chamber has worked as a business facilitator providing information,
offering business support and organising lectures and seminars, all with the purpose of
encouraging and promoting greater business and cultural co-operation.
The RBCC in the 21st century.
Now in its ninth decade the Chamber is entering a new era of Russo-British relations. All sectors
of the Russian economy – from retail to professional services - are enjoying an unprecedented
period of sustained growth. The UK has quickly adapted to and taken advantage of the
opportunities presented by the Russian market. The fact that in 2006 the UK was the number one
foreign investor in Russia is testimony to the strength of bilateral relations. Never before in the
450 year history of Russo-British relations have the two countries’ interests been so closely
aligned. Our aim is to continue and strengthen this alliance.
What can the RBCC do for you?
The RBCC works primarily as a business facilitator and information provider. Over the next few
pages the various services offered by the Chamber to its members are explained. These services
have been put together to suit a wide spectrum of companies. So whether you are a sole-trader or
a multi-national corporation, whether your company is well established in Russia or entering the
market for the first time we can assist and support your business. We are here to help make your
business activities easier, faster and more effective.
