For four consecutive years Russia has enjoyed a stable economic growth.

The country is regarded as a key outsourcing provider by major U.S and European companies, such as Boeing, Intel, Motorola, IBM, Sun Microsystems and many others running and expanding their innovative R&D centers in Russia. The true evidence of the country’s success is in the recent achievement of investment grade status by independent Moody’s Investment Services.
