In 2015, cross-border online trade with Russia was worth a staggering 3.4 billion USD.


As domestic e-commerce decreases – by 28% from 2014 to 2015 – Russian customers look to international retailers, resulting in a 55% increase in cross-border e-commerce revenue in 2015.


With a population of more than 143 million consumers and a rapidly developing infrastructure, Russia presents U.S. retail companies with promising opportunity, however, access to the world’s 8th largest economy does not come without challenges and risks.


In this one-hour briefing, we’ll discuss some of the infrastructure and compliance challenges companies should recognize when considering a move into the Russian marketplace.


Top legal experts from Kelley Drye will review recent U.S. sanctions developments and key anti-corruption concepts as well as share insights and strategies to help companies mitigate risk and meet regulatory expectations.


We will also hear an overview of the Russian e-commerce market and review several business models for new entrant merchants, with Finland as the leading gateway to Russia’s 30 million online shoppers.


The one-hour program will be immediately followed by a cocktail reception.
