Deloitte held a second round of the investment roadshow for representatives of Russian regions with the support of the Russian Trade Representation in China
27 November 2015 – Moscow, Beijing. Deloitte CIS 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.
Alexandr Krylov, Director, Russia and CIS Group, 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. Over a period of four days, the Russian delegation visited Heilongjiang and Liaoning provinces and Beijing city.
Deloitte independently holds events and invites representatives of Russian regions to participate in them free of charge. Highly qualified strategy, tax, and finance specialists aid regional participants in selecting and presenting their projects.
Over 300 representatives from 190 companies and local authorities have participated in two rounds of the roadshow which have not only generated positive feedback but have also attracted investors' attention.
The major 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.
