New business magazine will launch after the UK election
RussianFocus the new business magazine of the Westminster Russia Forum will launch after the British election and the government and its policies become clear. The first issue is now tentatively scheduled for July/August with the second issue slated for September/October.
The Cover story on the launch issue will be on oil giant Rosneft and a 24-page section, the regional focus, will be on Vladivostok and Primorye Krai.
The Publishing Editor, John Bonar is confident that with a 15,000 print run the English language magazine, with over 100 pages, will break the mould on Russian oriented publications in the UK.
John is one of the deputy chairmen of the Westminster Russia Forum. He is an experienced business journalist and editor. He has been associated with Russia since 1993.
“We are distributing through corporate locations in London, reaching business travellers on trains and planes and getting a message over to British business that Russia is the BRIC on our doorstep. After BREXIT Russia is potentially the largest unexploited market for the UK,” he said in a statement.
“The magazine will be financed through commercial advertising and sponsorship,” Bonar added.
