Currently, Russia ranks as the UK’s 24th largest export market. In 2011 UK exports to Russia increased by 30% totalling £2.67 billion. Furthermore, over the last 12 years, UK-Russia trade has been growing at an average of 18.5% year on year, with an annual rate of 9.5% forecasted in the next 10 years.
Paul May, Business Development Manager says “This trade mission will enable Universal Smart Cards to gain a superb insight into the Russian business environment. We are extremely keen to formulate a market entry strategy and grow our overseas business.”
Universal Smart Cards is a market leader in the implementation of smart cards and associated technology including NFC. As a result, Paul is very keen to test the NFC technology on his smartphone on the Moscow underground.
