The Russian Agency for Export Credit and Investment Insurance (EXIAR), Euler Hermes Deutschland AG (Euler Hermes), and PricewaterhouseCoopers Aktiengesellschaft Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft (PwC AG WpG) have signed an Agreement of Cooperation on international issues, and a Memorandum of Understanding on issues related to the provision of consultancy services.

The Agreement was signed at the Russian-German Strategic Group Meeting in Moscow.
