The Embassy of Latvia and the Latvian Investment and Development Agency is delighted to invite you to attend the business forum ““Link up and grow with Northern hubs” in the presence of Mr Arvils Ašeradens, Minister of Economy and Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Latvia. The forum will be held at the Rothschild Bank Headquarters London.

The aim of the forum is to inform UK businesses about the opportunities that lie in Latvia and the Baltic region.  We have much to offer as a hub for trade and investment not only in Northern Europe, but also beyond, as Latvia is on a well-established route towards Central Asia and CIS countries.  We believe the forum will be a useful step in strengthening the long-standing and growing business links between the UK and Latvia.

Topics that will be explored at the forum:

-  Investment environment in the Baltic States

-  Logistics sector opportunities

-  Infrastructure projects

-  Experience of foreign investors in Latvia
