Dezan Shira & Associates Join Russo-British Chamber of Commerce

Posted by

rbccDezan Shira & Associates, specializing in assisting foreign investors in Asia, have joined the Russo-British Chamber of Commerce (RBCC) and established partnerships with Russian law and tax firms in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Vladivostok. The firm, which has 28 offices throughout China, India, and the ASEAN region, is in its 26th year of operations and provides business intelligence, legal, tax, and administrative services to British and other predominantly European and American companies throughout the region.

The RBCC was formed in 1916, and works to promote trade and cooperation between the UK and Russia, helping companies in both countries to find trading partners and representing the interests of its member companies of all sizes.

“Russian businesses are looking to Asia, and Asian businesses are looking at Russia through potential Eurasian Economic Union free trade agreements coming down the pipeline”, says Chris Devonshire-Ellis, the firm’s Chairman. “Russia is significantly undervalued and under appreciated – just as China was immediately after Tiananmen. We see great potential in Russia.”

Devonshire-Ellis is also lecturing on China’s Belt and Road Initiative at the St. Petersburg Higher School of Economics.
