When the American Trade Center in Moscow opens for business in September, top U.S. and Soviet officials will be on hand to cut the ribbon to the first Western-managed hotel and business complex in the Soviet Union. The complex is the first Soviet project of Americom International Corp., an Irvine development company. And Americom seems to have scored a hit.
