Rusnet was established as a result of privatisation of a part of the Russia
& CIS Foreign Investment Promotions Centre "FIPC"'s activities.
Rusnet (formerly FIPC-Rusnet) proved its competence by consulting Dutch and
Belgian companies and firms in industrial, agro-industrial, food-processing,
transport and other sectors. Besides, it has experience in such sectors as
luxury goods, shipbuilding, port development, real estate development,
consumer market development, and infrastructure, telecom, environmental and
Thanks to its historic relations with the official FIPC-network and the fact
that its employees derived from high level official circles of the former
Soviet Union, Rusnet has a wide informal network in Russia and the CIS at
its disposal. The experience proves that this is a successful starting point
for effective and purposeful consulting of Western companies.

undoubtedly the largest information source in the Dutch language area of the
Benelux. More than 6,000 recipients (in particular, more than 3,000
companies in the Netherlands and Belgium) make use of the daily or weekly
information e-mailed by Rusnet free of charge. The Rusnet website is leading
in its branch.

business-to-business yellow pages guide for companies and organisations in
the Benelux doing business in Russia and C.I.S.

West Development Group.

Industry.Many companies from Russia and other CIS countries make use of the
VIP database of Dutch and Belgian companies and other organisations.
In cooperation with Russian or other C.I.S. official organisations and
companies, Rusnet organises trade and investment missions customised for
