Dmitry Bagrov DataArt's Head of Project Management, Europe, was a guest speaker at the recent Russian-British investment conference, "St. Petersburg: the opportunities to British investments", held at the Mayor's Smolny Headquarters in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The conference, co-organized by Russo-British Chamber of Commerce and St. Petersburg's Administration, addressed the issues of investment in the Information Technology sector, offshore software development, electronic passports for European nationals and UK involvement in the Russian techno parks initiative. Bagrov outlined DataArt's core competences, including team performance and project management, as successful factors in attracting UK businesses to work with St. Petersburg based IT companies.
"I was glad to see that UK businessmen are starting to see Russia as a serious partner" said Bagrov. "The best way for British business people to familiarize themselves with the Russian market is to visit and see it with their own eyes. DataArt is always interested in expanding our network of UK business partners, and we look forward to forming new partnerships".
