American news stories seemed to be filled with political and controversial news about the Russian Federation; it is rare to watch one nightly news segment without a "Russia" mention.  No matter what the current news, a fact remains: the United States and Russia are allies that maintain diplomatic and trade relations.  

Ever wondered what Supply Chain Management looked like in Russia?  Attend our October Professional Development Meeting to learn about Russia infrastructure (roads, rail, airlines, waterways) as well as the prominent industries in Russia (manufacturing, service industries, healthcare, and education).  Discover supply chain management challenges in Russia, including infrastructural, mental, and natural challenges. 

In this engaging discussion, get the story about the Russian Federation - it's history, geography, demography, culture, traditions and supply chain management challenges - straight from a native-born Russian Supply Chain Management Professional currently living in St. Petersburg!
