USRBC 2015 Annual Meeting
"Strategic Perspectives on Future Growth"



Overview

The U.S.-Russia Business Council's 2015 Annual Meeting once again kicked off with the Gala Dinner on October 26, this year held at the historic Morgan Library and Museum. The Annual Meeting's business sessions took place at The Westin New York at Times Square on October 27 and concluded with a cocktail reception.

This year's Annual Meeting addressed how the business community can best manage its interests during uncertain times and focused on navigating current economic challenges in Russia and overlooked positive regulatory developments as well as panels on Russia's healthcare policy and the implications for Russian employers, Russia's latest efforts to reduce obstacles to business, and takeaways for businesses with respect to the unwinding of previous sanctions regimes. This year's meeting continued USRBC's commitment as a platform for high-level, open and frank discussions of U.S.-Russia commercial and political issues.
