Building Bridges

In February, Wirtschaftsclub Russland (WCR e.V. Business Club Russia) celebrated their fifth anniversary in Moscow. Following the motto ‘Building Bridges’, four international painters created a unique peace of art together with the more than 150 guests who attended the event at the Swissôtel, Moscow.
This piece of art was donated and will be auctioned to help finance the ‘New Silkway Award’ for entrepreneurs and businesses, launched in January 2015 by Dr. Karin von Bismarck, chairman of Wirtschaftsclub Russland. Companies with involvement along the New Silk route between China and Europe, will be nominated for the ‘New Silkway Award’.

Wirtschaftsclub Russland was honoured to have the former prime minister of Brandenburg and Chairman of the German-Russian Forum, Matthias Platzeck as their guest. He pointed out that German-Russian relations in the past have survived many crises and that he is optimistic that a solution will be found to the present problems. Europe and Russia are located geographically on one Continent.
