Development Opportunities and Business Environment in Riga

Dear CanCham Members and Friends,
The CanCham invites you to participate in the CanCham Business Development Forum - Development Opportunities and Business Environment in Riga with Gvido Princis and Jānis Prūsis representing the City of Riga. Please register here  
Gvido Princis is Director / Riga City Architect at Office of The Riga City Architect. Jānis Prūsis is the Acting Head, Investment Promotion Division at Riga City Council, City Development Department.

The CanCham is promoting Riga as the place to invest and develop strategic partnerships in, or simply as a great place for businesses in Northern Europe. Latvia itself is the Suez Canal or Panama Canal connecting major population centres. North Americans get access to the EU, Russia and Central Asia and visa versa. Riga has been a major trading centre since 1201, but it offers more than just business. Quality of life which includes history, architecture, traditions, etc. make Riga an extra special place. We encourage our members to recognize these additional benefits when dealing with the clients and partners.

Today’s event will not only focus on investment and business, but factors which make “the Paris of the North” an attractive place to live and do business.

Forum participants are invited to come with their questions to help understand why Riga is the place to be for international business.

Entrance charge includes refreshments (dinner not provided). Cash bar available.
