Consumer Goods and Retail
The retail and consumer goods trade in Russia is showing dynamic and stable development with annual growth in volumes traded. The world's largest retailers and FMCG manufacturers have arrived in Russia and are actively developing, while domestic retailers are also expanding their businesses, increasing their presence in the regions and completing mergers and acquisitions. The government is also actively involved in the development of this segment of the economy and has issued a variety of legal and regulatory documents, the most important of which are government measures to regulate the activities of retail chains and trade margins,customs and tariffs policies, and measures on market regulation as part of the Customs Union/Common Economic Space and the WTO.
All this has an impact on the companies on the market, increasing the number of inquiries and requests we receive for consulting services.
