With financial support from Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, CAMESE polled its members to determine those interested in doing business in the republics of the former Soviet Union. Over 100 member companies supported the Russian version of the compendium. Profiles of their capabilities are presented in the catalogue. The information is also available online at CAMESE. Documents may be viewed or downloaded in Russian in either .html or .pdf formats. The information in the .pdf files is available as a whole or as individual companies. Readers of the Russian language Compendium may send questions about the Canadian firms to [email protected], and Camese will translate the material and pass it on to its member companies. The organization will also assist with preparing replies.
CAMESE also announced that it has revamped its web site, making it more effective in delivering information to potential buyers about member firms. The site, www.camese.org, received over 22,700 unique visitors in 2001 and 31,500 in 2002. The changes should encourage even more people to visit.
