Improved visa system and direct flights to Moscow would open up more business opportunities, stated Mr Maxim Peshkov – the Ambassador of the Russian Federation in Ireland, at the IEA’s Ireland Russia Business Association (IRBA) lunch on 29th August 2012.
At the Ireland Russia Business Association lunch the Ambassador from the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Ireland stated:
- There were many opportunities for the expansion of bi-lateral trade between Ireland and Russia and that the establishment of the Joint Economic Commission in November last year was a very positive step along the way.
- The Irish government was in a strong position to promote further trade with Russia through the World Customs Organisation, where Josephine Feehily – The Revenue Commissioners Chairman – was also the Chairman of the WCO.
- Equally there was a strong opportunity for the Irish Government to build further trade expansion with Russia during the Irish Presidency of the EU next year.
The Ireland Russia Business Association is hosting a special business lunch and networking event to welcome the newly appointed Ambassador His Excellency Mr. Maxim Peshkov from the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Ireland.
Following the sudden death of Russia’s Ambassador Ireland, Mikhail Evgenievich Timoshkin, IRBA offer condolences to the family, friends and colleagues.
Mikhail Evgenievich has made significant contribution to the strengthening of the economic ties between the two countries, and was a keen supporter of IRBA.
