There are many reasons to believe that the emerging Russian market will prove to be extremely lucrative for many Pennsylvania companies. After decades of forced economic isolation, Russia today is experiencing rapidly growing demand for goods and services matched by its increasing consumer buying power. According to the US Global Trade Outlook 1995 - 2000, Russia is one of the 10 fastest-growing world markets for US manufacturing goods. The high educational level of the population, large number of qualified professionals, and the advanced level of scientific research in Russia will allow Pennsylvania's high technology companies to not only find a big market for their products, but also find partners with world class research capabilities. Considering the wealth of Russian scientific and technological experience, cooperation in this field promises to be especially beneficial for Pennsylvania companies.
The Fair promises to become one of the most significant events for the Pennsylvania international business community this year. Among the planned organizational participants of the Fair are over 30 Pennsylvanian agencies, organizations, and local chambers of commerce, and several leading Russian business associations. The list of distinguished speakers includes several members of Pennsylvania legislature, the President of the Russian-American Chamber of Commerce, representatives of the US Department of Commerce and federal agencies, senior executives of the leading Pennsylvania companies involved in Russia, and Russian government and business officials, and officials from the Trade Representation of Russia in the United States.
