So we are exporting a lot more than importing, taking into account also the demand for the food, creating the products and others for the UAE and the rest of the Gulf region.”

Latvia is determined to develop its ambition not just in the government sector but also combining academics and business with one common objective towards a more data-driven nation. This gives the country an opportunity to use those advantages to the Fourth Industrial Revolution to provide fast development in IT infrastructure and technologies in a way that the country can benefit from.

We also have two very important economic agreement, Double Fixation Convention and Investment Protection and Promotion Agreement in order to provide business with a clear and solid legal basis with exchange of visits, marketing each other, and raising brand awareness. This is our ultimate goal for our embassy in Abu Dhabi,” Štālmeistars added.
