Latvia is one of the three former republics of the USSR that joined the EU in 2004. Despite having a relatively small domestic market, Latvia offers foreign investors a wide range of business opportunities. It has the sixth-highest GDP per capita in the region, which, combined with its skilled and competitively priced workforce and dynamic economic growth, make Latvia a particularly interesting investment destination for those investors who plan to ship their goods through the country’s Baltic harbours or who have aspirations of taking their goods or services to the Russian market (most Latvians speak Russian fluently). The most promising areas in terms of investment opportunities are biotechnology, food production, information and communication technologies (ICT), mechanical engineering and logistics.
