EXIAR takes part in second annual Networking Event
The second annual Networking Event took place in Moscow on 16–17 April 2014. It was organised by the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, with the participation of Russian trade representatives and experts from companies involved in joint projects, as well as representatives from the Russian regions, export support centres, and EXIAR.
The aim of the Networking Event is to facilitate personal meetings in order to discuss collaboration in drawing up and implementing foreign trade projects (including those involving development institutions), and organising Russian trade missions abroad.
The event attracted over 50 companies, including Rosatom, United Aircraft Corporation, AvtoVAZ, Kamaz, Inter RAO UES, Russian Helicopters, Renova, Mechel and medium-sized companies conducting business overseas.
EXIAR played an active role during the two days of the event. Managers from the Agency provided individual consultations for representatives of Russian companies on implementing international trade projects with the Agency's support, and provided information on new products available to SMEs and insuring Russian investors.
Representatives from the Agency held meetings with heads of trade representatives from India, Kazakhstan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Norway, Sweden, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Abkhazia and Iran. Among the items discussed were opportunities to organise joint events and trade missions abroad in 2014.

EXIAR’s mission is to support Russian high-tech exports by insuring export credits against commercial and political risks, as well as Russian investments abroad against political risks.
