Rusnet Partners :: History

Rusnet was established as a result of privatisation of a part of the Russia & CIS Foreign Investment Promotions Centre "FIPC"'s activities.

Rusnet (formerly FIPC-Rusnet) proved its competence by consulting Dutch and Belgian companies and firms in industrial, agro-industrial, food-processing, transport and other sectors. Besides, it has experience in such sectors as luxury goods, shipbuilding, port development, real estate development, consumer market development, and infrastructure, telecom, environmental and social projects.

Thanks to its historic relations with the official FIPC-network and the fact that its employees derived from high level official circles of the former Soviet Union, Rusnet has a wide informal network in Russia and the CIS at its disposal. The experience proves that this is a successful starting point for effective and purposeful consulting of Western companies.

More than 6,000 recipients (in particular, more than 3,000 companies in the Netherlands and Belgium) make use of the daily or weekly information e-mailed by Rusnet free of charge. The Rusnet website is leading in its branch.

In December 2004 became the representative of the Russian Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands after it separated from Buisman Partners - East West Development Group.

The VIP Project of Rusnet is supported by the Russian Chamber of Commerce & Industry.Many companies from Russia and other CIS countries make use of the VIP database of Dutch and Belgian companies and other organisations.

In cooperation with Russian or other C.I.S. official organisations and companies, Rusnet organises trade and investment missions customised for Western companies interested in development of business relation in the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova.
