The Swiss Business Hub Russia (SBH Russia) is the Moscow-based representation of the official international trade and investment promotion agency Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE).

swissbiz.ru is a resource providing the following information

  • Company profiles of participants of Swiss Pavilions at Russian trade fairs;
  • List of major trade fairs in Russia for Swiss companies.

It was established by two key institutions that work on bringing the business communities of the two countries closer to each other.

  • Swiss Business Hub Russia (Embassy of Switzerland in Russia), which supports Swiss Business in Russia;
  • Swissmem, the industry association promoting Swiss mechanical and electrical engineering industries at home and abroad.

We hope that this platform will foster Swiss-Russian business relations.
