The Three Seas Initiative (3SI) Summit and Business Forum are taking place in Riga, Latvia, on 20 and 21 June 2022. On 20 June, the Summit will be opened by the President of the Republic of Latvia, Egils Levits. The Summit will include a closed meeting between the 3SI Heads of State, the initiative’s partners (the USA, Germany, and the European Commission), and the guests of the summit, followed by a press conference.

The 3SI Business Forum will be opened by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Latvia, Krišjānis Kariņš, on 20 June. High-level representatives from government authorities, international institutions and companies will hold discussions in the course of two days. The participants will share views on the importance of advancing infrastructure connectivity and mobilising investments in the energy, transport and digital sectors, as well as seeking new models for cooperation.

Against the backdrop of Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine and current geopolitical developments, sectoral experts of international renown will exchange opinions on trends in the region’s economic development, investment climate, the diversification of energy supply routes and sources, innovative solutions to transformation in mobility and logistics, and the role of digitalisation in the strengthening of the region’s resilience and in the promotion of sustainable development.   

The 3SI Summit will take place at the ATTA Convention Centre, Krasta iela 60, Rīga, LV-1003. The Media Centre will be located in the same venue.
