Written by Tony Harkén on onsdag, 01 november 2017. Posted in Ryssland, Artiklar om Ryssland, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

Russian state-owned company Rosatom will build one in the south, the other in the centre, sources at the Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission told the BBC.

The deal's exact worth is unknown, although some reports suggest it is likely in the region of $20bn (£15bn).

Written by Tony Harkén on fredag, 27 oktober 2017. Posted in Right right 1, Ryssland, Artiklar om Ryssland, Main 2

Russia wants to be an investor in Saudi Arabia’s project to build the Neom megacity, which will be 33 times bigger than New York City.

The project will be financed by the Saudi government and private investors and powered entirely by wind and solar energy.

"The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) wants to be a co-investor with other international funds. The Fund will attract leading Russian companies to invest in the creation of the city of Neom, thereby contributing to their high-tech expansion in the promising markets of Saudi Arabia and the entire Middle East," RDIF CEO Kirill Dmitriev told reporters on Thursday.

"We are talking about investments worth several billion dollars," he said. The day before, Dmitriev met the Saudi crown prince to discuss further investment cooperation between Russia and Saudi Arabia.

Written by Tony Harkén on onsdag, 20 september 2017. Posted in Ryssland, Artiklar om Ryssland, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

Russian President Vladimir Putin has instructed the government to approve legislation making the ruble the main currency of exchange at all Russian seaports by next year, according to the Kremlin website.

To protect the interests of stevedoring companies with foreign currency obligations, the government was instructed to set a transition period before switching to ruble settlements.

According to the head of Russian antitrust watchdog FAS Igor Artemyev, many services in Russian seaports are still priced in US dollars, even though such ports are state-owned.

Kvinnor i företagsledning: Ryssland i toppen. Japan i botten.

Written by Tony Harkén on måndag, 13 februari 2017. Posted in Ryssland, Artiklar om Ryssland, Main 1, Main 5 - 3st

Andelen kvinnor i företagsledningar globalt har ökat marginellt det senaste året, från 22 till 24 procent, visar en ny undersökning från revisions- och konsultföretaget Grant Thornton.

Undersökningen omfattar över 5500 beslutsfattare i 36 länder. I Ryssland består nästan hälften av företagsledningarna (45 %) av kvinnor. Motsvarande siffra i Japan är endast sju procent.

Ryssland i topp
Östereuropa fortsätter att toppa rankingen. I Ryssland innehas 45 % av ledande befattningar av en kvinna, följt av de baltiska staterna Litauen (39 %), Estland (37 %) och Lettland (35 %). I Östeuropa saknar endast 16 procent av företagen kvinnlig representation i högsta ledningen.

Tyskland och Japan i botten
Dystrare är det i Tyskland där sex av tio företag helt saknar kvinnlig representation i företagsledningarna och där endast 15 procent av ledande positioner innehas av kvinnor. Även Nederländerna visar låga resultat med 18 procent kvinnor på ledande positioner och där knappt hälften av företagen (48 %) saknar kvinnlig representation i företagsledningen. Helt i botten av rankingen kommer Japan med sju procent kvinnor på ledande positioner och där så många som tre av fyra företag (73 %) helt saknar kvinnor i sina företagsledningar.

- Så länge undersökningen gjorts har Japan alltid legat i botten av jämställdhetsrankingen, säger Peter Bodin, vd på Grant Thornton. Tyskland har nu lagstiftat om kvotering i styrelser för de större bolagen, men frågan är om det har någon verklig effekt, när företagsledningarna i näringslivet är så ojämställda.

- Det finns flera initiativ för att öka jämställdheten generellt i Tyskland. Den tyska regeringen har till exempel från i år infört en lagstadgad skyldighet att det ska vara minst 30 procent kvinnliga ledamöter i kontrollorganen för de drygt 100 största börsnoterade bolagen. Men fler kvinnor måste också vara kvar i arbetslivet efter att de har skaffat barn och därför infördes 2013 en lag på att barn från ett års ålder har rätt till barnomsorg. Nu byggs barnomsorgen ut på alla håll i Tyskland, vilket också gynnar kvinnor i ledande positioner, kommenterar Kerstin Kamp-Wigforss, chefjurist på Tysk-Svenska Handelskammaren.

Ingen utveckling hos EU-länderna
Utvecklingen inom EU har i princip stått stilla de senaste fem åren. Resultatet visar fortsatt på omkring en fjärdedel (24 %) kvinnor i ledande positioner och att nästan fyra av tio företag (37 %) saknar kvinnlig representation i högsta ledningen. Den starka utvecklingen i Baltikum dras ner av den dåliga representationen i Tyskland och Nederländerna.

Endast var tionde kvinna är vd
Sett till ledande befattningar tenderar kvinnor globalt att ha positioner som till exempel hr-chef, (23 %) och ekonomichef (21 %). Andelen kvinnliga vd:ar är endast nio procent, nästan lika få som andelen kvinnliga försäljningschefer på åtta procent. I Sverige är det dock vanligare att kvinnor är ekonomichefer (37 %) än hr-chefer (27%). Andelen företag med kvinna som vd är i Sverige 13 procent.

Sakta framåt i Sverige
Drygt var fjärde person (27 %) i svenska företags högsta ledningar är kvinna. Andelen har i princip legat still de senaste tre åren. Men när undersökningen startade 2004 var knappt var femte (18 %) person i ledningen kvinna.

Om undersökningen
Undersökningen om kvinnor i högsta ledningen har gjorts sedan 2004 och omfattar i år 5520 företagsledare i medelstora företag. Intervjuerna har genomförts under perioden september-december. I Sverige har 500 svenska företag med 50-500 anställda intervjuats. Grant Thorntons researchpartner Millward Brown ansvarar för undersökningen som primärt genomförs som telefonintervjuer. I Sverige genomförs intervjuerna av företaget Prospector.

Russia Sells $11 Billion Stake in Rosneft to Glencore, Qatar

Written by Tony Harkén on lördag, 10 december 2016. Posted in Ryssland, Artiklar om Ryssland, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

Commodity trader Glencore Plc and Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund agreed to buy a 10.2-billion euro ($11 billion) stake in Russia’s largest oil producer from the state in a triumph for President Vladimir Putin over sanctions imposed by the West.

The surprise deal gives the buyers a 19.5 percent stake in Rosneft PJSC, which the U.S. and European Union have targeted with punitive measures, and is the biggest foreign investment in Russia since the crisis in Ukraine. It also marks a stunning return to deal-making for Glencore Chief Executive Officer Ivan Glasenberg a little more than a year after his company was forced to raise cash from shareholders.

IKEA assembles plans for upgrades & investment in Russia

Written by Tony Harkén on torsdag, 23 juni 2016. Posted in Ryssland, Artiklar om Ryssland, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

Russia's biggest shopping mall operator, IKEA Centers Russia, is planning to spend over $2.1 billion to upgrade its 14 premises in the country, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The company has a far-reaching plan to open more shopping centers further east in Russia over the next decade. However, for now the step is focused on its current locations.

The multinational aims to redevelop two existing malls in Moscow by boosting the leasable space for both properties by 15 to 20 percent.

Sweden-based IKEA Centers Group manages over 50 shopping centers in Europe, Russia and China with furniture retailer IKEA as an anchor tenant.

In Russia the stores operated by the group are known as MEGA malls. The vacancy rate of the 14 malls currently fluctuates around 1.4 percent.
