I did a map for marketing purpose for one of my client which will indeed be used in the brochure for markieting their products. Though i have used Illustrator for doing this map, wanted to know any comments on it.

Visually, it's vary striking and handsome, very attractive. I should imagine it would serve well for a marketing publication.
At least in this rendering it seems pretty difficult to read the text.
It also seems as if the projection used (whatever it may be) serves to give a great deal of weight to Russia in the north and very little to the countries in the south. Depending on whom your client is marketing to, this could be a problem. My experience has been that those who live in southern nations can be quite sensitive to distortions of this kind. A conic projection might serve your purposes better, I suspect.
I'd lose the border effect, just use a simple single line. This will improve the legibility of the map. Also, instead of using pink fill + black outline for text, just stick to a single fill color. As long as it contrasts well with the color you're using for the countries it'll be good.
Those two things, the border effect and the thick outline around the country names, make the map hard to read.
