Intercomp newsletter


Dear Sir / Madame​​​​​​​,

This year, we reviewed in detail the macroeconomic factors that affect us and our clients. The results of this analysis were presented at the conference Business Practice by Stanislav Skakun CFO of Intercomp.

At the request of the conference guests, we prepared an article based on the presentation made by Stanislav Global Economy on the Eve of 2019 and impact of main development trends on Russia.

We strongly recommend even non-manufacturing companies which do not need to buy raw materials and equipment to monitor the indicators mentioned in the article as they affect the business of all Russian companies.
