06.12.2017. 16:49

On 11 December at 14.00, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs together with the Investment and development Agency of Latvia (LIAA) are holding a discussion on the economic relations between Latvia and the United States of America and priorities for 2018.

This year has been a very important milestone in the economic relations between Latvia and the US: the Latvian Economic Representation has resumed operations in the US; this past October saw “Spotlight Latvia”, the largest conference for Latvian businesses, take place in Chicago; and the Latvian Chamber of Commerce in the US, or LatCham, was established. To conclude 2017, it is essential to take stock of what has been achieved in the strengthening of business contacts between Latvia and the US and to set new priorities.   

The event will be opened by the State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Andrejs Pildegovičs. Other presenters are: Toms Zvidriņš, Head of the Latvian Economic Representation in the US; Pēteris Freimanis, Head of the Latvian Chamber of Commerce in the US; Arnis Kākulis, President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Latvia; and Guntars Vičmanis, Commercial Specialist at the Embassy of Latvia in the US.

The discussion will take place in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, at Kr. Valdemāra iela 3. To register your participation, please visit the website of the Investment and Development Agency of Latvia at LIAA.
