As previously noted, Russia can be a challenging market U.S. companies that do not take the time to learn about the business environment and choose local partners wisely. Taking shortcuts in evaluating business opportunities and in selecting local partners is not advisable. Complicating these efforts is the fact that the Russian economy continues the transition from a closed, centrally-planned economy to an open, market economy. This means that basic business information about regulations, company ownership and credit worthiness is not always easy to find, and the regulatory framework continues to evolve, requiring companies to stay up-to-date with changes. The U.S. Commercial Service offers an International Company Profile service as a way to evaluate potential partners.
