  • Investment in Latvia is strong, with EUR 6.9 billion of funding being delivered between 2014-2020
  • Latvia is a transport and logistics hub for expansion into Russia, Scandinavia, Asia and Eastern Europe.
  • Low corporate tax rates, fast internet, and a qualified and multilingual workforce make Latvia a very attractive destination for forward-looking businesses.
  • British products and expertise are associated with reliability, quality and durability. Companies like Samsung, CEMEX, Cabot and Biosan have a presence there.
  • English is the business language of choice in Latvia
