I was surprised and impressed by terrific cuisine and the amount of diversity in Russia. Moscow was full of soul and culture and the Russians are very proud of it. The architecture and monuments were great. And the cultural performances at the gala dinner for the conference were just brilliant. There’s lots to love about Russian culture.  Russia is affordable: I expected Russia to be expensive, like a typical oil country. I was surprised that things like cabs and good restaurant food were not very expensive when compared to other large cities. This was one of the best things about being a tourist in Moscow. All in all, it was an amazing trip that was very revealing.

My trip to Russia was a very big surprise. What is said outside, mostly negative rethorics and what I saw is completly opposite. Very plesant place, top infrastructure (both very modern and very classical), very rich culture  and more importantly, great people, really great people. What was useful for my business – I  met people  from various fields and engaged in discussions with some. Less than two years later, one of those companies is my partner into a venture targeting Zambia and DRCongo. I’ll definitly come back as often as i can.

The trip to Russia left a lasting impression on me because not only did it shatter all the stereotypes i had about the country. But it also provided me an opportunity to form new friendships. As a result of the trip now I have a business partner in Russia. We are currently exploring several opportunities including creating a platform for young executives from African countries and other emerging markets to visit Russia and learn from some of the amazing best practices their Russian counterparts have to offer and vice-versa. Further I observed opportunities in fintech and other tech enables platforms that are potentially lucrative.

My trip to Russia was an eye opener for me. It was one stop shop for industry and commerce. We had a lot of contact with machinery and equipment manufacturing companies who we are talking to through B2B Export hence this current visit.
