The film «The Last Frontier» — is a film about the feat of cadets and commanders of the Podolsk Infantry and Artillery School on the outskirts of Moscow in October 1941 near Moscow. The positive role of the film is that it will give a positive impetus to the coverage of one of the most striking and at the same time unknown feats of Soviet soldiers in the entire Great Patriotic War. The cadets of the Podolsk artillery and infantry schools are completing their training, and they will soon become commanders. Two friends compete for a girl. Suddenly, the command learns about the breakthrough of the front and the movement of a German tank column to Moscow. The only serious force is the cadets, they must stop the Germans at the Ilyinsky defence line and hold out until the reserves approach. In fierce battles, where many of them die, they fulfill this task.

It is worth noting that such a film genre as war drama is already known to the Singapore audience. From November 20 to 26, 2020, the II Russian Film Week was successfully held. Due to the coronavirus pandemic in the world, the event was held in the online format, but aroused great interest among Singaporeans and counted more than 1 million views in six days.
«2020 year is the 75th anniversary of the end of II World War, in which the Soviet Union, of which Russia is the legal successor, and Singapore were allies. At that time Singapore was not an independent state and was part of the British Empire. Both countries were subjected to aggression. Western regions of Russia were occupied by the forces of Nazi Germany, and Singapore by the troops of militaristic Japan. The 9th of May is both a happy and a sad holiday. The coronavirus pandemic has certainly made some adjustments to our plans, but that does not mean that we will not pay tribute to all who deserve it. May 9 is a truly unifying day, encouraging us to remember that we are all descendants and heirs of the Great Victory. The film «The Last Frontier» is a reminder of the great feat of the people» – Nikolay Volobuev, Chairman of the Russia-Singapore Business Council and Deputy General Director of State Corporation «Rostec», commented.

RSBC Speaks in Co-organizer Capacity of the International Round Table on Tourism Development between Russia and Singapore

On November 3, 2020, an international round table “Russia – Singapore: Tools for the Development of International Tourism” was held in a Zoom-conference format. The main issues were the prospects for the development of Russia-Singapore cooperation in the field of tourism, bilateral and multilateral events, as well as interaction in related areas of culture and business. The event was held at the initiative of the Russia Singapore Business Council (RSBC) and the Singapore Tourism Board (STB).

The round table was attended by about 20 experts representing state and municipal authorities, travel companies (tour operators, travel agencies, excursion bureaus from Russia and Singapore), insurance companies, etc.

The experts focused on the impact of the coronavirus epidemic on the current situation in international tourism, mechanisms for ensuring the safety of life and health in places of residence, during flights, as part of excursions and public events. The experts highlighted the measures that are currently being taken in Singapore and Russia and tried to formulate some forecasts for the development of the tourism industry in the short and medium term.

Sergey Pronin (Deputy Chairman and Executive Director of the RSBC) spoke about the main directions of the Council’s work and the opportunities that it creates for the development of educational and business tourism as part of the development of the international electronic Platform RSTrade and Centre for Overseas Promotion of Russian High Technology Companies operating in Singapore.

Svetlana Mailatova (Manager of the Singapore Tourism Board for Russia and Eastern Europe) spoke about the activities carried out by the Singapore authorities, hotels, Changi Airport, etc. to ensure safe travel both to Singapore itself and as a transit point for travel to other countries, as well as opportunities to reduce travel costs provided by STB.

Svetlana Krasnoborodko (Business Development Manager of Singapore Airlines) demonstrated the airline’s new aircraft layout designed to improve service, drew attention to the latest cabin air recirculation system, which makes it possible to almost completely eliminate the possibility of infection during long flights, and informed about changes in the registration and flight rules.

Katerina Kolmakova (Editor-in-Chief of the Russian-language magazine Unique Singapore) focused on the issues of holding events in the conditions of the pandemic, the possibilities and prospects of hybrid forms that combine online and offline formats.

The meeting was moderated by Anna Akaeva (Head of International Cooperation and Marketing of RSBC).

At the end of the meeting an interactive game was held, where the three winners will be presented with books by Singapore’s first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew “From Third World to First”. This book has been translated into many languages and is recognized as a world bestseller.

All participants expressed confidence that, despite the damage from the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the tourism industry has something to offer corporate and private clients. New technologies for disinfecting surfaces and air will increase the safety of tourists in the post-pandemic time, modern information solutions will simplify the procedures for checking in for flights, checking into hotels and forming tourist services, including business tourism. Events have changed, many of them are held in hybrid and digital formats now. All this creates new opportunities for the development of the tourism industry and related areas.

Nikolai Volobuev (Deputy Director General of the Rostec State Corporation, Chairman of the RSBC) noted that the development of business tourism, including in new formats, is especially important for Russian industrial and innovative companies in the context of a pandemic. The economy and business continue to develop, thereby creating a steady demand for new tools, methods and formats for maintaining business activity.

The governments of Russia and Singapore provide additional benefits to travel service providers and tourists. And everyone, of course, is expecting the most important thing, namely the return of the tourist flow both from Russia to Singapore and neighboring countries, and from these countries to Russia.

Russia-Singapore Business Council took part in the international exhibition Industrial Transformation Asia Pacific 2020


On October 20-22, Industrial Transformation Asia Pacific, the largest annual exhibition of industrial transformation in Asia, took place. At ITAP-2020, a common stand of Russian companies was presented, organized under the aegis of the international digital trade and service B2B Platform RSTrade, which is operated by the Russia-Singapore Business Council. The Platform promotes the digitalization of business processes and the evolvement of international cooperation with the use of digital solutions.

RSTrade integrates with the international platform CamelOne, presented in 16 countries (operator is the Singapore company vCargo Cloud), which allows efficient selection of suppliers of logistics, customs and other services in the field of FEA, including the eSourcing format. On the virtual stand products and solutions of more than 20 Russian companies were featured, including the Shvabe holding and RT-Techpriemka JSC.

On the initiative of the RSBC, a business mission of Russian companies was organized in addition to the presentation on the virtual stand, which was held entirely in digital format. Negotiations at the Foreign Promotion Center of Russian High Technology Companies in Singapore (FPC) were the key part of the programme. Russian delegates met with representatives of Singapore business associations, which include the Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and the Economic Development Board (EDB), as well as of R&D institutes, such as National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technopreneurship Center and NTU Institute of Health Technologies.

Thanks to the agreement, companies of the Holding have been able to effectively carry out export-import operations with China and Southeast Asia countries during the pandemic and provide vitally important supplies of medical and personal protective equipment.

The Government of the Yaroslavl Region and the Russia-Singapore Business Council Signed a Cooperation Agreement


The Parties decided to join their forces and coordinate the promotion of products together, technologies for civil use and integrated solutions for industrial production and information technologies in the Yaroslavl Region to the markets of ASEAN countries, expand access of the Yaroslavl business community to technology transfer and develop contacts in the fields of science, education and art.

The cooperation agreement was signed by Nikolai Volobuev, Deputy CEO of the Rostec State Corporation and Chairman of the Russia-Singapore Business Council (RSBC), and Maxim Avdeev, Deputy Chairman of the Government of Yaroslavl Region.


“We have formed the key objectives and principles of our cooperation. The agreement is the result of fruitful joint work. Together we will be able to search for technological industrial and commercial partners for Yaroslavl companies in Singapore and Southeast Asia, using the Centre for Overseas Promotion of Russian High Technology Companies and presentation of investment projects, including a permanent showroom of Russian technologies, – said Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Yaroslavl Region Maxim Avdeev, – I especially want to emphasize the opportunities for promotion of Yaroslavl manufacturers presented by the information service”. The spring launch in test mode has caused serious interest among Yaroslavl export-oriented companies. As of this date, 72 companies and organisations from our region are searching for partners on RSTrade Platform.

In 2020, the RSBC, together with the Department of Regional Development and Foreign Economic Affairs, as well as the Russian Export Center, held a series of online events for the Yaroslavl business community and identified priority areas for cooperation within the RSTrade

Singapore is a high-tech state that requires modern solutions. At present, it is a powerful logistics, financial and technological hub of Southeast Asia.

“Singapore is a convenient launching platform for export and cooperation with the countries of the entire Asia-Pacific Region. These opportunities are already being used by Russian enterprises, including that are subordinate to the Rostec. Up to now, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Tatarstan were guided by the APR. I am sure that the Yaroslavl Region with its advanced production facilities and high-tech solutions will become another constituent entity of the Russian Federation that will adequately represent the Russian industry in the region. RSBC will provide Yaroslavl companies with comprehensive support and assistance to expand cooperation with foreign partners” – said Nikolai Volobuev, Deputy Director General of Rostec, Chairman of the RSBC.

Singapore is one of the most promising directions for the export of products of Yaroslavl manufacturers and services of IT companies. Cooperation with the Russia-Singapore Business Council will make it possible to more effectively implement the tasks set in the framework of the priority of the national project “International Cooperation and Export”.



Russia-Singapore Business Council was established in 2009 at the initiative of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation with the support of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation and the Rostec State Corporation. Currently, the Council includes 71 Russian production associations and enterprises, about 50, mostly foreign, associations and companies are partners.

The export of the Yaroslavl Region to Singapore from January to June 2020 amounted to more than 115 thousand US dollars. The total share of non-resource non-energy exports exceeds 99%. The main groups of exported goods: industrial rubber goods, stone products and printed goods.

vCargo Cloud – a partner of the Russia-Singapore Business Council – recieves SBR National Business Awards for Trade Technology

The company was lauded for the development of vCargo Cloud’s CamelONE™* platform.

Leading infocomm technology (ICT) solution and service provider vCargo Cloud, bagged the Singapore Business Review National Business Awards for Trade Technology. The awards programme aims to honour exceptional local businesses in Singapore and give recognition to their outstanding initiatives.

vCargo Cloud (VCC) is a specialist in offering trade and logistics related solutions to governments and enterprises worldwide. Led by a team of dedicated IT and logistics experts, VCC revolutionises the trade and logistics industry through designing and providing a platform—CamelONE™. This consists of a suite of interconnected modules to simplify the complexity of international trade, including compliance and documentation.

Currently, in the market, no companies have solutions that cover the whole cross-border trade ecosystem which therefore is unable to facilitate end-to-end cross-border trade process.

VCC aims to simplify global trade, especially for small and medium enterprises (SME). To do so, they developed a holistic platform that can connect stakeholders such as shippers, logistics service providers, government authorities and financial institutions onto an integrated platform to facilitate procurement, logistics, compliance, and financing for global trade.

The CamelONE™ platform allows stakeholders to connect and exchange digitised information seamlessly. This connection and ecosystem is said to simplify and enable a seamless end-to-end cross-border trade process, thus simplifying global trade.

After analysing the market situation, VCC adopted the UN/CEFACT “Buy-Ship-Pay” reference model and developed the CamelONE™ platform. This is said to have reduced logistics costs by 10%-15% for SME shippers.

It has also increased productivity and reduced reliance on manpower for logistics service providers and facilitates access to trade finance facilities that SME businesses would otherwise may not have access or be eligible for financing.

Under the category of buy services, CamelONE provides services covering commercial activities relating to the ordering of goods. These services are also integrated into CamelONE Ship and Pay Services for logistics and financial services to support the trade executed.

Furthermore, the CamelONE eCargo marketplace under the ship services acts as a digital logistics platform for service providers to offer their services and manage their operations. The platform is also connected to the National Single Window of several countries to facilitate cross-border compliance and enables transferring of data of commercial documents.

Moreover, the latest addition to this platform CamelONE Trade Finance, facilitates the provision of financial services under the pay services. It is a one-stop multi-bank portal which simplifies trade finance applications through a single interface.

VCC said it aims to eventually form a worldwide ecosystem to integrate the whole supply chain and to keep bringing more efficiencies as well as cost savings for stakeholders in the ecosystem.
