Dubai, UAE, 10th June 2014: Members of The First Group top management were honoured to join a host of VIP dignitaries from Russia to celebrate the country’s National Day. The team attended the Russian Federation’s Gala Event last night at Madinat Jumeirah to show its continued support for the UAE’s thriving Russian community.

“We are very proud to have been invited to this important celebration. We respect and value the Russian community,” commented Rob Burns, Chief Operating Officer for The First Group. “The Russian market and culture is extremely important to us, given not only our large number of Russian employees, but also our strong and continuously growing client base in the country.”

This time last year The First Group was honoured with the coveted 2013 Appreciation Award, in recognition of its exemplary service to the Russian community. The accolade handed out by the Consul General of the Russian Federation recognises companies that have contributed greatly towards establishing strong bilateral relations between the Russian Federation and the United Arab Emirates. Judges deemed that The First Group had shown the highest level of excellence as a UAE developer by providing outstanding products and services in Russia and the UAE.

“We have had thriving offices in Moscow and Kazan for many years,” continued Rob. “We pride ourselves in being able to connect with our Russian clients in their own language thanks to our high number of team members from the country and the fact that all our marketing and sales materials are translated into Russian. We look forward to continuing and growing this strong partnership in the future.”
