Russia and the Caucasus
CDC has a long history in Russia and the Caucasus. Currently two of our largest programs are located in this region, the Integrated Business Services Program in Russia and the Economic Development Program in Azerbaijan. Both programs have been successful not only in imparting valuable skills to local businesspeople but, also in developing the capacity of Azeri and Russian consultants to provide services to their local business communities.
As with the majority of our programs, CDCвЂ™s efforts in Russia and the Caucasus are focused on the small and medium enterprise sector. These services are provided through one-one-one assistance to individual companies, seminars, and local consultants paired with Volunteer Advisors.
