The Russian Business Council (RBC) is a collective of business people, trade stakeholders and decision-making influencers, which facilitates GCC-Russia trade. The organization formally created in 2010 and operating under the umbrella of the Dubai Chamber, is also supported by the Russian Embassy in the UAE, and is the first port of call for Russian businesses in the country. Council’s goal is to create a favourable climate for Russian companies and entrepreneurs that want to develop their business in the Middle Eastern market and to realize investment projects in the region. It serves as a bridge between Russia and the Middle East, and is the only Russian business association in the Middle East.
The RBC facilitates trade and business relations between the UAE and Russia, while providing channels for people interested in enhancing trade and investment ties to communicate and meet. The organization identifies and encourages the development of information sources relating to trade and investment opportunities, and also offers advice on practices and regulations for businesses wanting to enter GCC markets.
