     Mr Hirdman started his speech with giving a background of the Club mentioning
     the Nordpraktik – New Managers for Russia programme and that the Club was
     considered to be a natural development thus the Nordpraktik programme aimed
     at building business relations between our two countries and so does the Club.

     It hasn’t been that easy to start and to develop the new Club. One of the goals
     was to reach 150 members until April, 1st. So far the Club has 82 members.
     However the number of members is steadily increasing.

     Mr. Hirdman thanked Mr Bergström for his job as the executive member of the
     board and Mrs Nekrasova for her contributions as a development officer. Mrs

     her a book as present.

     Mr Hirdman gave a status report on the trade relations between Russia and
     Sweden and noticed the positive trend we can see in the more then doubled
     turnover in the trade balance since 1994, increased investments from Sweden in
     Russia and presently 260 Swedish companies operating in Russia. Mr Hirdman
     is optimistic to an continued positive growth in Russia that will lead to a demand
     of investments in infrastructure but also to a more consumer oriented society.
     Hopefully we will soon be able to welcome more Russian companies on the
     Swedish market.
