Strategies and Prospects for European companies in Russia


On 23 May 2017, the Association of European Businesses and the International Institute of Marketing and Social Research “GfK Rus” announced the results of the tenth AEB Annual Survey “Strategies and Prospects for European companies in Russia”. The Survey analyses the comfort level for European business in Russia, evaluating the country’s investment climate. 

The opening remarks were delivered by Frank Schauff, AEB CEO, and Stuart Lawson, AEB Finance & Investments Committee Chairman / Senior Advisor, EY. Alexander Demidov, Managing Director, GfK-Rus, presented the results of this year survey. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session.

On the background of the current improvement of the situation and higher expectations about business indicators, the comprehensive AEB-GfK index rose 21 points from 2016 and stands at 141 points out of a possible 200 (in 2016 it stood at 120 points, and in 2015 at 106). The index shows positive expectations and has now approached the level it was at in 2013 (144).

For further details, please refer to the results of the AEB Survey in English and Russian and to the press-release in English and Russian.

We would like to thank the companies who contributed to the survey with their answers and hope that more of our members will be interested to participate in this project in the future.
