- In Russia, business cards contain the name and surname of the owner, company name, position, phone number and email. - In Russia, the name and surname of the owner, company name, position, phone number and email are indicated on the business card. Please, tell me which option is better?

Hello Alex.BC,

In terms of grammar, both sentences are perfectly fine. In terms of style, I think the first version is better as the second one contains a very long subject which may make the sentence harder to follow.
