The Catalonia Trade & Investment office in Moscow is directed by Elena Palaguina. Trained in Hispanic studies in Moscow, she has spent her entire career in business working on international trade projects. This experience has provided her with first-hand knowledge of how to help Catalan companies to do business in a market as complex as Russia’s.
The Catalan Government Trade & Investment office in Moscow opened in 1991 and is located in the city centre, near the Kremlin. The team is also staffed by a further three consultants.
Although the Moscow office works with companies from all sectors, firms from the design and industrial systems industries predominate. The office’s main appeal, which draws from its direct presence in Moscow, involves seeking customers, suppliers and distributors in Russia for Catalan companies.
