Political and Economics Section

Welcome to the Political/Economic Section of the U.S. Consulate General in Yekaterinburg. The Section is dedicated to creating closer commercial and economic ties between Russia and the United States through various services, programs and events.  We offer facilitation and referrals as well as no-fee consulting services and partner searches for U.S. firms seeking to expand to the Urals.  The Section also works closely with the Foreign Commercial Service at U.S. Embassy Moscow to assist potential and current U.S. investors and exporters and to identify opportunities for U.S. trade and investment in the region.   

The section reports and provides analysis on political and economic developments in the region, including major investment issues, regional politics, and human rights.

The Political/Economic officer also regularly conducts community outreach with universities, schools, and civic organizations to expand contacts and understanding between Russians and Americans.
