Main challenges lying ahead in 2017 will involve negotiations between the EU and the United Kingdom on its withdrawal from the EU and the model of future relations between the EU and the United Kingdom, security in the EU and at its borders, the continuing high migration flows, and ensuring stability and economic growth in the EU.

Latvia’s interests lie in continued support for an effective, strong and united EU as a union of nation-states. In terms of the work of the Latvian Foreign Service, this means expanding Baltic and Nordic cooperation, strengthening relations with Germany and the BENELUX countries, active and regular cooperation with France, as well as with the Visegrad Group and Southern European countries.
