Business and Investment Development Agency



CzechInvest in Russia and CIS

CzechInvest’s office in Moscow has leveraged the favourable conditions for both small and medium-sized enterprises and large corporations that characterise the Czech business environment. The key task is to reinforce the positive view of the Czech business sector, which is already well established in Russia. The office works across sectors, though it places emphasis on high-value-added production with a strong R&D component. Its efforts are aimed at shifting the nature of Russian investments to highly sophisticated areas that include Czech entities. The most prospective areas are electrical engineering, laser technology, life sciences and the IT industry.

Services include: 

  • consulting services focused on investments in the Czech Republic
  • assistance with registering a Czech legal entity and related taxation issues
  • selection of suitable property / land for commercial development
  • guidance in business planning
  • advice on investment planning and financial support for business projects
  • mediation between investors and banks providing project financing
  • identification of promising Czech start-ups

To date, most Russian investments have been in the manufacturing industry and energy-related sectors. However, the investment structure has been changing in favour of high-value-added areas such as electrical engineering, IT and life sciences.

Russian small and medium-sized enterprises most highly value the following advantages of the Czech business environment:

  • stable economic, political and tax environment
  • strategic location at the geographic centre of the EU
  • strong supplier / customer integration with the EU markets
  • high level of industrial development
  • advanced R&D landscape
