Mission to the St. Petersburg Economic Forum (SPIEF) 2023.

After establishing many interesting relationships two years ago, we were invited again this year and we even had the opportunity to combine business with pleasure.

This year we were accompanied by two members, with whom we visited Saint Petersburg's industrial plants and explored the possibilities of economic relations, especially in the construction industry.

We were impressed by the warm welcome we received everywhere - all the companies we visited would like to cooperate with Swiss companies, of course it is very time-consuming to clarify in each case whether an order from Swiss SMEs is subject to sanctions or not. However, there seems to be a possibility of introducing such products through agencies, for example in Turkey.

We will only deepen these relationships and hope that the Chamber of Commerce will soon be able to perform its accumulated function again.
