About Us

The U.S.-Russia Business Council (USRBC), based in Washington, D.C., with an office in Moscow, is the premier U.S.-based trade association representing the interests of its U.S. and Russian member companies on commercial matters. USRBC’s global approach is to work with a company’s headquarters as well any offices in the United States, Russia or regional capitals to advance a company’s bilateral trade and investment agenda.

USRBC focuses on U.S.-Russian commercial relations, engaging in advocacy efforts with both the U.S. and Russian governments on behalf of its members; assisting member companies with strategic advice; providing information and analysis to support business decisions; and facilitating access and networking opportunities with government officials and private-sector leaders through an active program of high-level briefings and meetings.
