GLENDALE, Calif., June 22, 2018 /CNW/ -- Returning from the best event yet in 2018, Export Portal is doubling down on their efforts in Russian speaking territories with a firm commitment to support all verifiable companies to join the ExportPortal.com platform in 2018 after attending ECOM EXPO '18.
Export Portal CEO, Ms. Ally Spinu was buoyed by what she saw at this year's event held in Moscow but was disappointed not to be able to attend the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum held on the same day as ECOM EXPO. Vladimir Putin has several targets to hit in the coming years whether it is per capita GDP, real income growth, 5% annual growth in labor productivity or most importantly the contribution of small business to the national economy approaching 40% by the next decade and increase in the people employed by small businesses from 19-25 million. These ambitious goals need the fuel of e-commerce under them to build out the mentality that More Verified Trade via ExportPortal.com means an even faster way to increase the ease of doing business in Russia. The 2018 theme of the International Economic Forum was to focus on business partnerships across France, India, Italy, Finland, Japan, the US, and Africa. Ms. Spinu stated, "If the General Director of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives, Svetlana Chupsheva is looking for a unified plan for improving the business environment, she would be hard-pressed to find a better way to do so than via e-commerce."
The ECOM EXPO event was inspiring on several fronts and very different from other events Export Portal has attended this year. Export Portal CEO Ms. Ally Spinu stated, "There is a definite interest in wanting to try new e-commerce platforms, but I think there is still a philosophical question mark that hangs over people's heads when dealing with an American company." Ms. Spinu continued, "Any event Export Portal attends is an education in what is wrong with current trade restrictions, but based on the multitudes of people that approached me after presenting at ECOM EXPO, we realized the need for a reliable source to conduct business with other countries."
While in Russia, Export Portal's International Business Development lead John Zahaitis was proud to have met with Tatarstan Trade Minister Albert Karimov in Kazan to discuss what could be done to further develop closer ties with businesses in the region: http://mpt.tatarstan.ru/eng/pressa/foto.htm/photoreport/3920867.htm
Ms. Spinu continued, "As a result of what we learned from our trip to Russia and Tatarstan, Export Portal is now doubling our Russian-speaking resources and are going to further build out the Russian language section of ExportPortal.com to accommodate the large influx of companies that signed up on ExportPortal.com."
