Deloitte Global Chinese Services Group organised a second round of the roadshow presenting Russian regional investment projects, which took place from 23 to 27 November 2015 in the cities of Chengdu, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. The total value of the projects presented was over USD 5 billion.
This event was aimed at the development of Russian-Chinese investment cooperation in the largest industry sectors, such as construction and real estate, transport infrastructure, various manufacturing and agricultural sectors, and others.
During the roadshow, over 30 investment projects were presented, including the construction of a high-speed tram line for the FIFA World Cup 2018, the creation of a large transport hub in Central Russia, the construction of modern health centres, as well as the launch of joint auto part factories in the following regions: Moscow; Samara, Tula, Yaroslavl, Ulyanovsk, Sverdlovsk, Stavropol, Khabarovsk and Bashkortostan.
Alexander Krylov, Head of Russia & CIS Desk in Deloitte China: "Recently, a great number of round tables have been held dedicated to a wide range of issues in China. These events focus on selected regions or even cities, providing Chinese investors with abundant information on domestic regions. We are therefore trying to present our regions in a more structured, systematic and accessible manner. The event targets potential investors in cities where there is a lack of information about our country".
Earlier, Deloitte held a number of conferences for representatives of the Russian and Chinese business community as part of the first roadshow, which took place in the north-eastern provinces of China. The events aimed to inform investors about large and lucrative projects in nine Russian regions. Speakers at the event in Beijing were Alexey Gruzdev, Russian Federation Trade Representative in China, Yang Yihang, Deputy Director General of Investment Promotion Agency of Ministry of Commerce of China, and Han Dong, General Manager of Russia-China Investment Fund. Deloitte thanks all regional representatives for the excellent preparation and organisation of the event. Highly qualified strategy, tax, and finance specialists from Deloitte supported the selection and presentation of investment projects in these events. The events received positive feedback from participants and garnered the attention from investors. Over a period of four days, the Russian delegation visited Heilongjiang, Shenyang, and Beijing.
According to Deloitte Global Chinese Services Group Chairman Rosa Yang, Russia is an important political and economic partner for China, and plays a part in China’s One Belt One Road initiative. Amidst the changing dynamics of the marketplaces, Deloitte Global Chinese Services Group and Deloitte Russian desk in China have been supporting clients with advisory services and other professional support, which focus on helping clients to address complex challenges when investing in Russia. Deloitte holds free and independent event and invite the participation of corporate representatives from Russia.
