The U.S.-Russia Business Council's 2016 Annual Meeting "Innovation and Russia’s Return to Growth" once again kicked off with the Gala Dinner on November 10, this year held at the Merchants Exchange Building's Julia Morgan Ballroom. The Annual Meeting's business sessions took place at The St. Regis Hotel San Francisco on November 11, followed by a cocktail reception.  The program culminated in an excursion to historic Fort Ross, Russia's former southernmost settlement in North America on November 12.

This year's Annual Meeting explored how innovation can be a new driver of economic prosperity in Russia.
