  14. 14. 14 Perception of Russian Companies - China In recent years, Chinese investment in Russia has been increasing and the overall trend is positive. The energy, infrastructure and consumption sectors have great potential. However, Russian companies keep a low profile; we would like to learn more. China Business News There’s a correlation in economy and trade between China and Russia, thus the market prospect is considerable. For Chinese investors, the two biggest concerns are trust and corporate governance. Therefore, corporate profiling and information transparency are very important. International Business Daily
  15. 15. 15 Perception of Russian Companies – Hong Kong Russian companies have a low profile in Hong Kong and liquidity of their shares is low. We think it would be great if transparency of Russian companies can be increased and are interested in working with them. BOCOM (Bank of Communications) International Securities Limited Russia has huge amount of natural resources; its economic growth should be positive. Also its trading relationship with NE China is a good sign indicating the increasing investment in Russia. Infocast.com.hk
  16. 16. 16 Perception of Russian Companies – Singapore Gazprom listing its GDRs on the SGX allows greater access to Asian investors. We would welcome more opportunities like this in future. From an Investment Banker
