Representations in the Benelux area by EES

EES executes entrepreneurial activities for Russia FIPC International Foundation in the Benelux area under the tradename FIPC. EES is a member of East - West Development Group (EWD).

EES has its own representative agents in Moscow (Noviy Arbat) and in St. Petersburg, as well as for Geneva and for New York.

EES provides services to both Russian/CIS and Western customers. Formost, EES endeavours to bridge the cultural differences between the Russian-speaking and the Dutch- or English-speaking business counterparts and their social and state environments. EES primary activity concerns facilitating Western companies in their relations with the top-level decision-makers of the Russian and CIS’s federal and regional authorities and institutes, because the positive attitude and support of the high-level authorities is a necessary ingredient for succesful investment in the promising future of Russia and the CIS-countries. Its client-base mainly excists of large and middle large companies, particulary from the Netherlands and Belgium.

The added value for Western companies to engage EES -or other members of EWD- lies in:

Also for its FDI-customers EES can provide -under certain conditions- a service for obtaining business visa for Russia within one day (during normal weekdays only).

In addition through EES the following services can be arranged:

EES subcontracts reliable local partner organisations which are well positioned inside the local social structure. Therefor, involving EES is both effective and efficient:

Western-style quality at an East-European price level.

EES provides a profound understanding of the local social-cultural environment:

understanding your partner and his environment is the key for success.

EES works complementary to the Western Embassies and other Western representations in Russia and the other CIS-countries, because EES (FIPC) is Russian-driven and represents the local interests in attracting East - West development. Russia and the CIS-countries welcome foreign direct investments and therefor their authorities support and facilitate Western initiatives through the EWD-member network.

Next to FDI-projects, EES is active in promoting and facilitating projects of a more cultural nature (in the widest sense, including educational and scientific endeavours). EES has strong relations with the main Russian museums and is active in the field of developing international fund-raising programs for the preservation of our world’s heritage. In the past five years, EES initiated successfully several cross-border exhibitions (e.g. for the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum in Moscow). It represents in the Benelux area the Government of St. Petersburg for cultural and educational development. In 1999, the University of Novgorod honoured dr J.A.W. Buisman for his achievements to bridge the cultural differences between Russia and the Netherlands.

Therefor, engaging EES provides also a significant added value for the following services:

It should be noted that EES also represents institutions such as Maecenas Society (fund-raising) and the Foundation for the Development of Parliamentarism in Russia. Dr Buisman has an extensive network of influencial personalities in the areas of the media and culture.

EES is co-initiator of the Rusnet Project.
