The Russian electrical market has a volume of approx. 4 billion Euros and ranks fourth in Europe in terms of turnover, right behind Germany, France and Italy.  The market is very well organized from west to east and guarantees manufacturers a nationwide introduction and marketing of their products. A peculiarity of the Russian market is certainly that a relatively small number of wholesalers account for 3/4 of all branches.

The states of South America are above all economically important partners of Germany, and relationships with them have developed pleasingly well.

Walter Mennekes was pleased with the Foreign Minister’s invitation: “The trip was short, it is true, but very intensive and effective.
