The trouble with Russia

  • Russia is mired in political tensions with the west
  • Companies and selected individual businessmen are subjected to sanctions
  • The western press are hostile and believe the country is faced with economic
  • uncertainty
  • Ruble has tumbled in value
But the East is open for business with Russia!

Facts

Russia is in north eastern Europe and northern Asia. It is the largest country in the
world—slightly less than 1.8 times the size of the United States, with a total area of
17,075,200 sq km (6,592,771 sq mi). The country spans 11 time zones from the borders with
EU in the west to the northern Pacific Ocean in the east. There are over 144 million Russians
and it was the world’s sixth-largest global economy in 2017, in a World Bank ranking that
adjusts GDP for price differences among countries (purchasing power parity).

Vladivostok on the move

Since 2012 Vladivostok has rejuvenated with a new vigour:

  • Since 2017 free e-visas for visitors from 18 countries were introduced allowing eight-day entry into the Vladivostok Free Port Area
  • Since 2018 it is the capital of the Far East Federal Region
  • In 2019 inaugurated new trade routes were inaugurated, transhipping container
    traffic from China, Japan and Korea to Europe cutting shipping time by half and
    reducing costs
  • In January 2021 the regional e-Visa programme was superseded by the Universal e-visa programme which allows travel across Russia on a short-term single entry valid for foreigners visiting Russia for tourism, business, private and humanitarian purposes, in effect from January 1, 2021 and permitting stays of up to 16 days with arrival and departures counted as one day each.

About Vladivostok

Vladivostok was a closed city for 70 years, home to the Soviet Pacific fleet. With five universities it is a magnet for the youth of the Far East. Built over hills surrounding the Golden Horn Bay grand avenues are graced by buildings dating to the 19 th Century that housed European and Chinese merchants. Vladivostok is Russia’s window to the Asia Pacific. It is Russia’s bridge to the fastest growing economic region of the world. Vladivostok could develop from its current 600,000 population into a multi-cultural cosmopolitan city of 1 million+ inhabitants, with an international middle class population by 2030.
