BWA is a non-governmental association that groups about 1,000 large German corporations and small and medium-sized businesses. The association promotes the economic interests of its members and builds bridges between German businesses and corporations, policymakers, and universities worldwide. For years, BWA has been playing a proactive role in Russian-German economic relations. According to BWA, it is one of the few remaining foreign trade associations in Germany that speaks about the German-Russian relations in understandable terms and believes that healthy bilateral ties serve the interests of its country.
