3 THE AMBASSADORS INTRODUCTION 3 Russia is the potentially biggest near-market that Denmark has. Over the last years Denmark has been exporting for about 12 billion DKK per year. The final result for year 2014 will be different and based on the numbers currently available, the export will amount to just under 10 billion DKK. Considering the Russian ban on food import from Europe, which hit Danish exporters hard, this is an interesting figure. Why were we were not hit harder? The answer is that Danish exports to and investments in Russia is far more diversified you find Danish companies engaged in all sectors. The current difficult political climate has not changed this fundamentally. And there is no need to shy away from the Russian market, if you are careful and have a well-thought through strategy. When discussing the how with Danish companies who have been on the Russian market for some years, they point to the fact that Russia has always been a challenging market. It has its peaks and its lows, but so far it has come back every time. Their lessons learned points can be summarised in 3 P s. Presence If you want to have Russia as a market, you need to be here when it goes up and when it goes down. Some Danish companies expand when the market is down. The square meters in the shopping centres are cheaper and the local governments more eager to welcome you in local projects. It pays off in the long run - they remember those who stay! Patience Things takes time in Russia. Few starts out with a big and great success on the Russian market. A key factor to achieving success is to know the right people.. A key role for me and my colleagues at the Embassy is to open all the right doors for you to help you establishing relationships with the right people and getting a solid foothold faster. Companies, who have been here for more than 20 years, still use our services to meet the right level of decision makers and buyers. Persistent The companies who have something to offer that is relevant for the Russian market and who stay, will find that there is money in Russia. Currently the Russian government are implementing an anti-crisis plan that include major infrastructure projects and support for the Russian industry. Another major focus is on increasing the internal Russian food production. This is a big task where all steps from field to table needs to be improved. This is a huge opportunity for Denmark and Danish companies. Denmark has been through this process many years ago and we have the know-how and machinery that will create real value for the Russian counterparts. Starting to work with Russia will always be a big task, and this is no less true today. The current political environment should, however, not prevent Danish companies from taking advantage of the opportunities that do exist. That would be an opportunity lost. This is where I hope you will let the Danish Trade Council Russia (The Commercial Department at the Embassy in Moscow and the General Consulate in St. Petersburg) help you, get the right understanding of the market, get the right contacts, all in the aim to get the contracts and the sales! We are also covering Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, Tadzhikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan and will be able to assist your access to these markets as well. I and my colleagues at the Embassy and the General Consulate stand ready to guide and advice you also on the political framework. I hope to see you in Russia. We are looking forward to assisting you in achieving success. H.E. Thomas Winkler Ambassador of the Kingdom of Denmark to the Russian Federation

10 10 Healthcare sector in Russia
11 11 HEALTHCARE SECTOR IN RUSSIA The Russian Healthcare market is a market in growth. The lack of efficient tools and equipment with a growing elder burden is a development that Denmark and the Danish system know very well. Here the Danish companies are in the forefront of developing innovative and efficient solutions. However the structure of the market is challenging and the financial situation is adding to the challenge. Even with these challenges there are Danish companies on the market working hard and earning money. The Russian healthcare system is divided into national, regional, and municipal levels. The national government controls the budget, policy, and registration of technologies, while regional and municipal governments have control over their facilities and budgets. The national government collects taxes and distributes funds to the regional and municipal levels through Mandatory Health Insurance funds. This covers about two-thirds of the cost of procedures. To make up the difference, Russian citizens also have access to voluntary health insurance and private medical care. This system continues to evolve. In 2010, the government implemented the Strategy 2020 initiative to attract investment, create jobs, produce safe and effective products, and reduce the country's dependence on foreign healthcare products to a maximum of 50% by 2020 (Source: In January 2013, the government approved a national healthcare development plan for the period. The programme consists of 11 initiatives that focus on several areas including preventive care, health & wellbeing of mothers & babies, and medical rehabilitation/physiotherapy. The government's national Health project aims to improve healthcare standards. Since the project's implementation, numerous medical facilities have been upgraded. Medical devices The Russian medical device market is expected to contract by a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 2.9 % over the period, due to the weakening of the ruble. Russia was one of the fastest growing markets in the region for many years, but current economic situation is expected to change in 2015, which will adversely affect medical device market growth, as less money is made available for healthcare. Additionally, imports may fall as the currency devaluation has made foreign products very expensive. In 2013, the Russian medical device market was estimated at USD 6,716.9mn, or USD 47 per capita. This market size is comparable to Canada; in per capita terms, the market is similar to Croatia. The CAGR was estimated at 0.3%, but the market is expected to contract by a CAGR of 2.9% over the period, to USD 5,785.2mn, or USD 41 per capita by Over 70% of the medical device market is supplied by imports. Russia imported medical devices valued at USD 4,848.9mn in 2013; this represented a fall of 21.8% compared with 2012 and a CAGR of 1.1%. Imports have grown every year since 2003, with the exception of 2009 and In the 12 months to September 2014, Russian medical device imports decreased by 26.1%, to USD 4,525.5mn. Rehabilitation equipment According to a market research of rehabilitation services conducted by Synopsis medical research centre in 2012, about 12% of the population of Russian Federation suffer from chronic diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The growing number of such patients increase the demand for rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation centres located in Leningrad and Moscow regions (including recently started projects) seem to be more interesting target group. Nowadays both individual and corporate investors are interested in this sector. During the last two years a number of new projects of rehabilitation centres were initiated both in Moscow and Saint Petersburg One can also notice that a range of services is growing and a comprehensive approach to rehabilitation is being implemented.
12 12 Most popular rehabilitation equipment: - training simulators (cardiovascular, bike and bodysimulators for the different groups of muscles and joints) - Equipment for water treatment (Charcot s douche, multifunctional medical baths etc.) - walking aids - equipment for the massage and manual therapy - Rehabilitation equipment may also be acquired by rehabilitation clinics located in resort areas (Krasnodar region, the Caucasus etc.) The introduction of new methods of rehabilitation seems to be not so complicated as introduction of new diagnostic and treatment technologies. Home care rehabilitation equipment is also in demand. Both exercise therapy and physiotherapy are very popular methods of medical rehabilitation since the Soviet times. Nearly all public and private clinics are equipped with basic physiotherapy equipment. Both public and private sectors are mainly equipped with Russian made physiotherapeutic technique. Nowadays Russian manufactures produce more than 100 types and positions of different physiotherapeutic devices. Their lifetime is years, but there are a lot of year old devices still in use. On the one hand, this is an evidence of high quality of domestic production; on the other hand, the time has come to replace those old devices with new and modern ones. International standards for rehabilitation services have changed, patients demands have diversified and increased, and there is a clear demand in Russia for new physiotherapy equipment. However, it is necessary to say that the situation in private healthcare sector is not so crucial and an average lifetime of physiotherapy equipment in use is only 7 years. Besides healthcare institutions, potential clients to buy physiotherapy equipment are nursery schools, private secondary schools and sanatoriums. Russian manufacturers of this equipment are far beyond their western competitors both in design and fficiency of their products, but it is hard to compete with them on price. Thus a foreign supplier of physiotherapy equipment, who is interested in Russian market, should carefully examine the market situation and clearly draw out its competitive advantages in comparison to local competitors. The leading importers of physiotherapy equipment come from the Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Japan and Germany. Orthopaedic devices & prosthesis are among most popular devices imported to Russia.

13 13 Pharma The pharmaceutical industry in Russia has been witnessing strong growth over the last couple of years, with the alimentary/metabolism segment leading the market. The industry grew by 17.5% in 2009 and is expected to reach a value of $10.7 billion by the year The Russian pharmaceutical market accounts for just 3.6% of the European pharmaceutical industry in terms of value. Despite global economic downturn Russian pharmaceutical market remains strong and continues to attract foreign companies. With sales of medicinal products exponentially rising over the last 10 years, both large and midsize Pharma are actively expanding its presence in the Russian market. The forecast for the next 10 years suggest a robust growth of pharmaceutical sales. (www.cromospharma.com) At present time Russian pharmaceutical and medical device market is hugely dependent on outside import. There is a difference of allocation of the state resources, when it comes to medical equipment, which is mostly state funded and pharmaceuticals, mostly a retail market. Medical equipment and pharmaceuticals (public sector accounts for around a quarter of Russia s pharmaceuticals market) are procured for use in the public sector via electronic tenders, organized in accordance with the recently revised general state procurement legislation. However, in early February 2015 in the framework of the anti-crisis plan and import replacement measures the Russian government restricted state purchases of certain imported medical equipment and goods. Also, the ministry of industry and trade just came up with a proposal to restrict admission to tenders of imported pharmaceuticals, if there are two or more proposals to deliver similar pharmaceuticals from domestic producers. The Russian pharmaceutical market ranks second in volume terms after the foodstuff market and is one of the most dynamic and promising specialized markets. The Russian pharmaceutical market ranks among the top ten pharmaceutical markets in the world. In 2011, Russia was 8th in the world. The value of the Russian pharmaceutical market was 28.1 billion USD in end-user prices, which is a 12% increase compared with (Source: DSM Group). The volume of the market for pharmaceuticals in pharmacy procurement prices decreased by 6,8% in November 2014 in comparison with October 2014 and totalled up to 44,7 bln RUR. The average price of a pharmaceutical package increased for 2,9% and ran at 130,4 RUR in November From the beginning of 2014 the inflation rate for pharmaceuticals at the pharmacy shops of the country totalled at +8,5% in RUR and -21,1% in US dollars. The market structure of pharmaceuticals did not change radically in November 2014 in comparison with the same period in The reduction of quantity of pharmaceuticals with the price range of RUR per package continued in 2014 (from 20,3% in November 2013 to 17,6% in November 2014), pharmaceuticals of the lowest price segment (i.e. cheaper than 50 RUR per package) saw reduction of the market share from 7,3% to 6,7%. And pharmaceuticals with price tag of 500 RUR per package shared 28,4% of the market in November 2014 which is 2,1% more than in November At the end of November 2014 г. 55% of pharmaceuticals sold were of domestic origin (in physical terms) however due to their low price in comparison with the imported pharmaceuticals in terms of value they show 24% of sales. The commercial segment of the market at the end of November 2014 was presented by prescription products at 51% and for OTC drugs at 49%. (Source: What can the Trade Council do for You?

30 30 Creative industries
31 31 CREATIVE INDUSTRIES CIS region offers a wide range of opportunities for Danish companies. In 2015 Trade Council focuses its attention primarily on Russia and Kazakhstan. Opportunities in Russia Consumer Goods Russia's retail sector has over the last years been expanding due to the rising interest in foreign brands, population growth (especially in urban areas and big cities), aspirational purchasing, easier access to credit and the development of a modern retail infrastructure. Increasing amounts of foreign direct investment have allowed retailers to make significant expansions. Today the Russian market is facing troubled times with the fall of the rouble and a limitation of the spending power of the middle class. However this also spells a move by the consumers from luxury brands to more affordable luxury, a strong point for Danish design well known for its quality and design. Fashion Russians are all about fashion and fashion brands, and the market is growing steadily. With nearly all the major players in the fashion industry present on the Russian market, the Russian retail sector is the fastest growing and dynamic sector in the Russian economy. Women s clothing and kid's fashion are the two major markets in Russia. Kids are the princes and princesses of the family and they are dressed accordingly. This trend has been widespread in Denmark and the result is many smaller brands and collections. The Russian retail sector is aware of that and is hunting for suitable brands for its market. Danish fashion companies exploring the Russian market should be aware that it is a professional and highly competitive market. Products should be of high quality and collections should be unique, preferably with a wide size range. Promotion is a required investment; promotion materials need to be of a very high quality and deliveries must be punctual. Jewellery Russians traditionally love jewellery, especially gold, the symbol of wealth and prosperity. The Russian jewellery market is one of the most rapidly developing markets in the world. In recent years, it has grown between 20 to 30 percent. Jewellery falls under the growing market for luxury goods in Russia. Euromonitor forecasts a 4.6% growth in volume terms and 6.7% growth in value terms for the period The dynamic development of the Russian market has made it attractive for foreign companies. The consumer group within this sector is large and can be pared into two groups. The first group is characterised by buying mostly mass-produced goods. These consumers with medium income and traditional preferences usually trust Russian-manufactured jewellery. The other group of consumers that is interesting for the Danish companies comprises people whose incomes are large enough to appreciate not only the metal the jewellery is made of, but also its brand, design and exclusiveness. This group usually prefers foreign-made jewellery. This shows why brand reputation and craftsmanship are crucial. The best-selling jewellery types are rings, neckwear and earrings. Danish design The Russian market is ready to get acquainted with affordable luxury design and other top Danish design brands. The market for luxury goods with an explicit focus on design and quality is a rising market in Russia. Especially the market for design accessories is very lucrative. The Russian market requires an
32 32 open and innovative approach to the preference of the Russian consumer which typically differs significantly from Scandinavian preferences. Retail opportunities Walking the streets of one of Russia s larger cities makes it obvious how Russians make an effort of showing off their different luxury goods. It is a competitive market with opportunities for new brands and retailers. Russian purchases via the internet were in 2014 made by million people according to estimates and the number of internet shoppers will increase rapidly every year. One of the key features of further internet retailing development in Russia will be social. The retailers will in their turn embrace more retail formats, from convenience stores to mobile application orders via smartphone and tablets. Opportunities in Kazakhstan Kazakhstan being the 9th biggest country in the world and the 2nd largest CIS member offers a wide range of opportunities for Danish companies. Kazakhstan remains a politically and economically stable country with a sustainably growing GDP rate (US$ 217 billion 2014). The country is entering a development boom phase which is a weighty reason for Danish companies to focus on this market. Kazakh mentality is alike Russian one and in this respect market features in creative industries sector look similar to the Russian ones that were described previously.

43 43 Machinery and Technology
44 44 MACHINERY AND TECHNOLOGY The machinery and technology sector in Russia provides significant export and joint venture possibilities for Danish companies. Despite recent economic challenges, including ruble devaluation, Russia is still a very large market for production and construction machinery, ICT solutions (both hardware and software), and consumer electronics. Russia s total capital expenditures in January-November 2014 amounted to RUB 11 trillion (EUR 146 billion at current exchange rates), while imports of machinery, equipment and transportation vehicles during this period were worth EUR 110 billion. In the short- and medium-term significant state investments in infrastructure projects and newly adopted import replacement programs will be the main drivers behind strong demand for foreign equipment and knowhow. In the longer term, Russia has good chances to improve economic performance, while additional exciting market opportunities will arise from the transformation of the Customs Union (Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan) into the Eurasian Economic Union. Machinery new and old Russia s manufacturing sector is a mix of production facilities dating back to the Soviet Union times and modern production plants built during the last two decades and based mostly on foreign technologies. Older plants often require complete re-design and all-new equipment to continue operations, while newer facilities need continuous upgrades to remain competitive. Construction of new manufacturing plants, warehousing and distribution facilities is also regularly started even despite current foggy perspectives of the country s economy. And foreign suppliers are often the only source of state-of-the-art production technologies, machinery and solutions for all these projects. Among specific segments where Danish machinery and expertise is especially in high demand there are food production, metalworking, wood processing, and several others. It should be noted that penetration of the Russian market requires physical presence in the country with own sales offices and/or sales representatives or via a solid partnership with a strong local distributor. Infrastructure from airports to stadiums Federal focused capital spending program amounts to RUB 1.02 trillion in 2015, RUB 900 billion in 2016, and RUB 916 billion in 2017 (more than EUR 120 billion annually). The focus is on all types of transportation infrastructure (airports, highways, seaports, and railways), as well as on cultural, educational, and sports facilities (stadiums for the FIFA World Cup, museums in Moscow and St. Petersburg, federal universities in major cities, etc.). Interesting opportunities for foreign suppliers of machinery and technology arise in connection to public private partnerships with international participation taking over highway construction and management. Special attention of the Russian government to expansion and modernization of airports and railroads in large Russian cities could also generate demand for solutions and machinery from Danish vendors. ICT and consumer electronics The ICT sector in Russia is well developed and diversified. Demand for ICT systems from all the sectors of the economy and also the public sector continues to be very strong. Danish companies developing niche software and hardware solutions can play a significant role. However, in most cases entering and building presence on the Russian market for ICT solutions in many cases will require developing partner relations with a well-established Russian systems integrator.
45 45 Most promising opportunities can be found with the hardware segment, where Russian domestic ICT industry is traditionally not very strong while Danish companies have strong expertise especially in niche products, as well as in such segments as data hosting and SaaS. High-end consumer electronics is another market of significant interest for Danish companies. Russia s well-to-do and ultra-rich households are eager to purchase expensive high-quality and designer products and represent a welcome public for new state-of-the-art product offerings. In total, Russians spent RUB 1.47 trillion (EUR 19.6 billion) on consumer electronics, appliances and gadgets in Join the Technology Club The Technology Club, an initiative launched by the Trade Council, promotes Danish interests on the Russian market for machinery and technologies. Below you will find our invitation to join the Club.

50 50 MINING FACTFINDING TRIP TO RUSSIA AND KAZAKHSTAN
51 MINING FACTFINDING TRIP TO RUSSIA AND KAZAKHSTAN, April 2015 BRIEF FACTS ON MINING IN RUSSIA 51 Russia is rich in all kinds of mineral deposits from aluminium to gold and it is the source of a significant share of the world s raw minerals production. The country s exploration potential is difficult to assess, but there are valid reasons for believing that the known deposits are just a fraction of those to be discovered. Business Monitor International forecast the value of the Russian mining sector to grow to USD 259 billion by 2015, even with the global slowdown in demand. Unlike the oil and gas industry, the country s metals and mining sector is Russia s largest private industry. The estimated monetary value of the Russian mineral reserves is USD 29 trillion and according to estimates from 2012 the level of production of the mining and metallurgical industries in Russia was around USD 130 billion. Extractive industries taken together constitute 33% of Russia s GDP and account for 60% of federal budget revenues, and Russian commodities account for up to 80% of exports. So the mining industry is clearly one of the most important industries in the Russian economy. Russia has the world s largest reserves of iron ore approximately 56 billion tons, and at the present Russia produces more than 100 million tons of marketable iron ores per year, which makes it the fifth largest producer in the world. Russia is also a very strong player in the coal industry, and is currently ranked second in the world in terms of percentage of world reserves. SUEK, KRU, SDS and Mechel account for about 65% of Russia s coal exports. The long term prospects of the coal mining sector are positive due to Asia s continued reliance on coal to cover rising electricity needs. As a result the Russian government plans to spend USD 120 billion between 2012 and 2030 on developing the country's coal reserves, alongside major investments into logistics and engineering capacities. The metals industry is highly concentrated a few top companies account for about 60% of total revenue. (Severstal, Evraz, Norilsk Nickel, Rusal and Mechel). In recent years, the Russian diamond mining industry has also become an important source of income. According to a report from 2013, Russia is now the world s leading diamond supplier, accounting for about 22% of the global diamond supply. In 2013 approximately mineral deposits had been explored and only about one third of them are currently being developed and mined, so the Russian mining industry still has great untapped potential. Despite the fact that Russia has massive quantities of unexplored and unproved reserves its potential is hampered by the fact that 30 70% of those reserves are not exploitable in the current economic condition. One of the main reasons for this is the fact that the Russian mining industry is mostly using mining methods and technology that dates from the Soviet period. In order to compete on the global stage, the priority for the Russian mining industry and responsible government institutions in the next decade will be to modernize the operations, increase productivity, invest in new technology and build the infrastructure required to bring new projects and raise the efficiency of production, as well as to create a more stable climate to support the investment into the sector. The other trend that will shape the development of the industry will be increased globalization and internationalization of the key players, with western companies entering Russia and the Russian mining champions focusing more on the West. There are plenty of opportunities for international companies especially services and equipment suppliers, mining companies interested in exploring investment opportunities in Russia, particularly in precious metals, as well as representatives of capital markets and banking industry. Additional information: - a compilation of mining related articles about Russia
52 MINING FACTFINDING TRIP TO RUSSIA AND KAZAKHSTAN, April 2015 BRIEF FACTS ON MINING IN KAZAKHSTAN 52 Kazakhstan is extremely rich in minerals and has the potential to overtake many of the leading mineral economies, but foreign capital and technology is needed in order to utilise these vast resources. The country is currently ranked 6th in the world in terms of its amount of mineral resources, and the mineral resource base has an estimated net worth of USD 46 trillion according to government reports. Kazakhstan accounts for 30% of the global reserves of chromite and 25% of manganese ores. Iron ores as well as reserves of copper, lead, and zinc range from 10 to 13%, respectively, of the world reserves. Kazakhstan is also an important source of uranium. In 2009 it became the world s leading uranium producer, and by 2013 Kazakhstan accounted for 38% of the world production. The Kazakh government is committed to increase uranium exports and aims to supply 30% of the world fuel fabrication market by the end of Coal remains one of the core industries for Kazakhstan, employing around 40,000 people only in the mineral-rich province of Karaganda, which yielded more than 17 million tons of coal in the first 7 months of New deposits Zhalyn and Kumyskuduk are being developed now. Karagandagiproshakht Institute has prepared a package plan of development of the mining industry in Karaganda until Copper production is also a bright spot in the country, given aggressive expansion plans by London-based miner Kazakhmys and giant Rio Tinto's commitment to invest USD 100 million in exploring northern Kazakhstan for copper. Consequently, mining is by far the most important industry in Kazakhstan, also when it comes to export. In 2012 Kazakhstan had exports valued at USD 88 billion, and exports of mineral products accounted for 78% of total exports. But the unutilised mining potential in Kazakhstan is still great. At the moment 99 different minerals have been discovered, 70 of those are being explored, and so far 60 of the minerals are being recovered. Kazakhstan's mining industry value is set to soar in the next years, reaching USD 29.5 billion by 2017, slightly down from previous forecasts, due mainly to the recent overall decline in commodity prices, says a newly-published report by Business Monitor international. Growth will be led almost exclusively by the coal, gold and copper sectors, which together account for the majority of the value of the Central Asian nation's mining industry. Since 2011 the Kazakh government has taken significant measures to support the expansion plans of the country s largest mining companies, and it is expected that the volume of investments into the industry will amount to USD 12 billion by The Government of Kazakhstan began to privatize state mining companies in By July 1998, virtually the entire sector had been privatized. The government is working to improve the sectoral outlook by stiffening legal codes - the mechanism for granting exploration licenses has been simplified, but implementation work remains. The procedure for obtaining environmental permits is also being streamlined. Most Kazakhstani mining equipment needs replacement or repair, and environmental and technological upgrades. A number of foreign mining businesses have made substantial investments in Kazakhstan in uranium, beryllium, coal, and gold. RWE NUKEM (USA), for example, handles mined uranium and markets it to other countries, and as legal codes become more conducive to foreign investment, all of the mining majors are likely to become more heavily invested in Kazakhstan in the next ten years, and market entry in later years could become a much more expensive proposition. Part of the forecasted mining boom is already becoming evident. A study published by PwC shows that the nation was second on the list of major merger and acquisitions in 2013, with Kazak billionaires, along with the Republic of Kazakhstan, representing the second and third largest transactions during the period involving a USD 4.6 billion stake in Eurasian Natural Resources Corp (ENRC).

62 62 Food and Agriculture
63 63 FOOD AND AGRICULTURE For a variety of reasons, there have over the years been disruptions - of shorter or longer duration - in trade in agricultural products between EU-countries and Russia. While this is a recurring challenge, it has also been clear that there are significant market opportunities for trade in food and agricultural commodities. Many Danish exporters have recognized this and show the necessary focus and persistence to benefit from these opportunities. The food and agricultural sector in the Russian Federation is furthermore facing high national expectations to expand production to be able to cover a larger part of domestic consumption. At federal and local level, efforts are taking shape to provide the frameworks necessary (including public funding) to realize this objective. Substantial investments are needed across the board in order to improve production efficiency. This can represent significant opportunities for Danish companies that specialize in quality and modern production methods. Russian agriculture Russia has the world's fifth largest agricultural area, second only to the United States, Australia, Brazil and China. 13% of Russia's 200 million hectares land is used for agriculture. However, Russia remains heavily dependent on food imports. Today agricultural production takes place in former farming communities - now called agro holdings - and from small family-owned holdings. As part of its ambition to diversify the Russian economy, the Russian government in 2012 introduced a 7 year plan for modernisation Agriculture policy with a list of ambitious targets: Increased self-sufficiency by 2020 Increased agricultural production by 39% Increased production of food, beverages and tobacco by 60% Average annual growth in investment in agriculture of 8.8% Expansion of cultivated area by 10.3 mn acres Increased productivity by 70% compared with 2009 Increased profits in agriculture by 25% Increasing agricultural wage levels up to 95% of the average wage in Russia Recently, the ambition of the government to increase national production has received further priority and new targets and support measures are being considered. Danish investments Investment opportunities in the Russian agriculture follow the traditional pattern with regard to animal production with poultry and pork sectors offering quick return. Dairy, beef cattle and manufacturing sectors are forecast to grow in the coming years. Danish operators have made substantial investments in Russia within pig production, dairy, seeds, and processed food products. Because of Russia's stated policy of development of local production, the Danish companies can get a favourable position through investments or by establishing partnerships with Russian companies. Danish exports Exports within the agricultural, food and fisheries sector - including machinery and equipment for the sector generally make up more than 1/3 of total Danish exports to Russia, thus contributing significantly to the Danish trade surplus in Russia. Under market based conditions before the most recent trade disruptions, exports of pork meat, including by-products, have alone accounted for around DKK 1.5 billion annually. Because of strong Danish competences which match the Russian requirements, the Danish agriculture and food industry has great export potential across the value chain in Russian food production. The export potential is supported by rising affluence and increasing demand for products which Danish companies can supply directly to retailers or as raw material for further processing. The development in the Russian food sector and gradual professionalization of the retail sector provide Danish companies with opportunities to be stable suppliers of high quality foods. Furthermore, there are good opportunities for Danish companies as suppliers within agroindustry.
64 64 Organic foods Sales of organic foods in Russia have increased steadily in recent years. Organic foods are still a niche in Russia where primary customers are young, educated people from the upper middle class, typically families with children, in the metropolises of Moscow and St. Petersburg. The main challenge with expanding sales of organic products in Russia is the absence of rules concerning the definition and labelling. Food consumption and packaged food market For a number of years, Russia's largest mass grocery retailers have been among the world's fastest growing. With a population of more than 140 million, Russia is Europe's biggest consumer market. The retail market has achieved dynamic growth over the past few years as disposable incomes have increased, the expanding middle class follows Western patterns of consumption and the level of consumer credit possibilities have risen. Export barriers In general, foreign companies operating in the Russian market should be prepared to face a number of challenges in terms of bureaucracy, opaque investment conditions, mixing of public and private stakeholders' interests, diverging practices in different regions, as well as technical barriers to trade. It is therefore essential for Danish companies to find Russian partners who can manage the internal process, especially in the early stages after entering the Russian market. What can the Trade Council do for You? Trade Council Russia can assist you in finding reliable Russian business partners, locating potential partners, searching for enterprises which meet specific requirements and select the most compatible. Trade Council Russia can be of help by providing all necessary contacts, organize meetings and negotiations with representatives of Russian companies. We can provide updated and useful market information, which will help you gain a competitive edge on your target markets. Furthermore, Trade Council Russia can carry out market investigations based on specific requirements. In the following pages you will find a summary of some of the concrete initiatives that TC Russia is lining up in this sector for this year. For those interested, more details on these initiatives will be made available. We should add that other activities also can and will be considered, so please don t hesitate to contact us.

BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW OF AGRICULTURE DEVELOPMENT IN RUSSIA State Programme for Agriculture In 2012, the Russian Government adopted the State Programme for Development of Agriculture and Regulation of Agricultural Commodities Markets in aimed at development of agriculture of Russia and gaining food independence of the state. The development of the livestock industry and dairy sector in particular will remain the top priority for the Ministry of Agriculture. Another priority of the programme is technical and technological modernisation of machinery and equipment. Overall budget of the State Programme till 2020 is 34,977 bln Euro (1 525 bln RUR exchange rate as per October 2013). The state programme is financed from the federal and regional budgets. The budget for the sub-programme Development of cattle breeding and processing cattle breeding production is 11,382 bln Euro (496,255 bln RUR). The budget for the sub-programme Technical and technological modernisation and innovative development, which is aimed at stimulating agriculture producers to buy high technology machines and equipment, is 658,5 mln Euro (28,71 bln RUR). On February 17, 2015 the Prime-minister signed a decree according to which 500 mln Euro (35,7 bln RUR exchange rate as per February 2015) will be spent for co-financing loans and decrease rates for the sectors of cattle breeding and crop production. The state programme for agriculture was revised and 2,6 bln Euro (185 bln RUR exchange rate as per February 2015) will be spent for the programme in Existing Danish Experience The Trade Council Russia has extensive experience in developing and running Strategic Alliance projects for Danish companies. Recently realised projects were Road Construction Alliance and City Parks Renovation Alliance. At the moment TC Russia is working on Airport Renovation Alliance.

76 76 Energy and Environment
77 77 ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT The energy sector is at the core of the Russian economy and the main source of foreign currency revenues for the country. Russia is increasing the focus on environmental protection and energy efficiency. These issues are well known in Denmark and Danish industries have over the last 30 years worked hard on finding innovative and efficient solutions. These solutions now have a major market potential in Russia. Below you can read more about the specific areas within the energy and environment sector. A market with high potential The need for high-tech environmental-friendly solutions for Russia s natural resource industry sectors provides good opportunities for Danish companies because of the strong and unique Danish competences in these areas, including management skills and high-tech machinery and technology. Likewise the country s problem with supplying clean water to all citizens makes this a market with high potential for Danish companies. As part of a dedicated effort to support Danish commercial interests in the sector and further develop the strong engagement by Danish companies, the Trade Council Russia has established two clubs the Energy & Environment Club and the Oil & Gas Club. Read more about the benefits and advantages of membership in the annexes to this chapter. Energy resources and challenges Russian natural resources, which contain 32% of the world s natural gas reserves, 13% of the oil reserves, and approximately 30% of the coal reserves, have, as a consequence of the quantity, a substantial impact on the global energy market. Russia is one of the countries that spend the most money on subsidizing fossil fuels, primarily natural gas. Of the 605 billion cubic meters of natural gas that Russia produces annually, 414 billion cubic meters satisfy the huge domestic consumption. The amount would be significantly
78 78 lower if Russian consumers, industry, and power stations had to pay the same prices as in the EU. In addition it would release considerable amounts of natural gas for export. As a key economic sector, the energy sector is strongly interrelated with the Russian overall economic performance. The government of the Russian Federation is undertaking efforts to carry out a reform aiming at sector modernization, raising efficiency, and creating conditions for fair competition in the sector, which has always been strongly monopolized. This leaves an opening for Danish companies, which will be able to participate with knowhow and new technology. At present the falling oil prices and international sanctions are limiting the government s ability to improve the sector and discouraging much needed private investment. However, as soon as the situation improves, the planned and necessary improvements are expected to get back on track quickly. Among the critical issues for the development of the Russian energy sector as a whole there are poor management skills, worn-out equipment and machinery, and insufficient utilization of modern production technologies. More than half of the coal mining equipment, around 30% of the gas pumping units, more than half of the equipment in oil production, and more than 30% of the equipment in gas production is outdated and worn out. Most of the oil pipelines have already been in use for 20 to 30 years, and more than half of the nuclear power plants demand urgent improvement in accordance with modern safety requirements. This situation creates an obstacle for introduction of new efficient technologies and protracts the process of the sector s transformation. Meanwhile, it presents huge opportunities for Danish companies to participate in energy infrastructure upgrade and expansion projects. Environment protection and improvements In recent years, more emphasis has been put on environmental protection in Russia, and energy saving is one of the major priorities for the energy and utility sector s development. Given the high level of equipment deterioration, the focus is on sector re-equipment using energy efficient technologies. One of the tools for energy saving strategy implementation is the state program of the Russian Federation, Energy efficiency and development of energy sector, valid from 2013 to The program covers diversified issues dealing with development of the oil and gas sector, the coal industry, production of electricity, and development and usage of renewable energy. For the purposes of energy saving and minimizing the environmental impact the program envisages replacing outdated equipment, rehabilitation and introduction of new facilities based on efficient technologies. Construction upgrading and urbanisation Usage of energy efficient technologies and equipment in the building and construction sector has significant potential due to the fact that the Russian market for construction has been growing rapidly for several years. The Russian private housing market is currently slowing down, but not coming to a halt. The reasons for the slowing, but continuous, growth are numerous; old and worn-out buildings need repairs, families living in one room are moving into individual apartments, and urbanization in Russia because of migration are all factors supporting continued construction of private housing.
79 79 Water utilities sector One fourth of the world s fresh surface and underground water is located in Russia. Still, low quality water is one of the major water resource problems in territories with a high density of population. The water utilities sector is one of the largest industries in Russia serving the entire Russian population. There are over 25,000 municipalities in Russia, and virtually all have a local water utility. Russia has an incredibly large and extensive water supply network. Despite poor investments during and just after the Soviet era, Russia has seen a large amount of new investment in recent years a trend that is expected to continue. However it is estimated that only 28% of the Russian waste water is treated in accordance with existing regulations, while the rest is discharged improperly treated into lakes, rivers and seas. This endangers the fresh water supply over time and Russia is therefore very interested in solutions based on BAT (Best Available Technology) legislation. To mitigate this critical problem the Russian government has launched the so-called clean water program that came into effect in 2011 and is due to run until The main objectives of the program are to replace obsolete equipment, improve water quality and increase the efficiency of the entire sector.
