As an official entity of the Embassy of Switzerland, the Swiss Business Hub Russia (SBH) is responsible for implementing Swiss export strategies in Russia and for promoting Switzerland as a business location. With close relationships to Swiss business and academic stakeholders, the SBH can draw on selected networks in both Switzerland and Russia. A client-centred attitude and the flexibility to offer bespoke services uniquely position the SBH to meet and support a company’s business requirements.
The SBH assists small and medium-sized enterprises from Switzerland and Liechtenstein in expanding their market presence in Russia. The SBH provides localised support, market information, and consulting and networking services to Swiss companies venturing into the Russian market and to Russian companies searching for a Swiss partner. An experienced team of trade advisors stands ready to support inquiries of all kind and serves as a first-hand local contact for companies – both new and experienced – in the Russian market.
As the Moscow based representative of the official international trade and investment promotion agency Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE), the SBH also actively promotes Switzerland as a highly attractive business and investment location for Russian companies looking for growth in Switzerland, Europe and the world. S-GE works worldwide to support entrepreneurs and promote Switzerland as a business location, and it is represented abroad by the Swiss Business Hubs.
The SBH provides support to most industries.
