On the occasion of the 21st FICIL High Council Meeting with the Government of Latvia, members of Irish Latvian Chamber of Commerce are invited to take part in the Public panel discussion “Do!” to discuss topics and recommendations which FICIL working groups have been addressing the past year. The Discussion ”Do!” takes place on the 25th May at 13.30 at Stockholm School of Economics in Riga.
”Do!” is the key theme for the upcoming FICIL`s annual High Council meeting. During the past 12 months, several reforms have been undertaken by the Government and there are areas where business and investors see positive developments. ”Do!” is the key message of foreign investors encouraging the Government to deliver on the reforms undertaken and encouraging to start new ones in the areas where the pace of change and results are not sufficient.
