Dear CanCham Members and Friends,
 
The CanCham invites you to participate in the Business Development Forum – Exports, Investments, Strategic Partners, and meet the new Latvian Ambassador to Canada with
  • Kārlis Eihenbaums, Latvian Ambassador designate to Canada
  • Arvils Zeltiņš, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Head of the Foreign Economic Relations Promotion Department,
  • Marks Deitons, Latvian Embassy in Canada First Secretary responsible for promotion of business, trade and investment.
 
 
If you are interested in any of the following:
  • exporting products, services or innovations to Canada,
  • finding strategic partners for development projects or investments from Canada,
  • increasing export sales to Canada,
  • providing services to Canadian companies doing business in Latvia
  • representing Canadian companies in Latvia or the Baltic region,

this is a must for you.

This event will be a discussion format where our guests will introduce themselves and indicate their experience and vision pertaining to the above topics. Forum participants will be asked to present themselves and indicate what their requirements are as they relate to this subject matter. Together we will discuss how entrepreneurs should present information about their companies, and how our diplomats can help to promote their business interests in Canada and elsewhere. Please keep in mind that this is in preparation for CETA, the trade agreement between the EU and Canada, and is very relevant to those looking at the North American market for business opportunities.
