All kinds of festivals take place in Latvia throughout the year.

But if you prefer a peaceful and relaxing holiday, on the shore of a picturesque lake or river, far from the city noise and bustle, you can fully enjoy the silence and comfort of Latvian hospitality in a guest house or a quiet hotel.

Despite the fact that Latvia has developed agriculture, woodworking, chemical, pharmaceutical and machine-building industry its economic success is not too impressive - production of gross domestic product (GDP) per capita is far from the indicators of the leading countries of the European Union.

There are sea and air ports, a developed network of railways and highways, warehouse complexes in the state.Therefore, with the proper organization of business, the forwarding company in Latvia is able to bring a stable high income.

Business Information

If you want to open a business in Europe and do it without unnecessary problems, we advise you to think about Latvia. Why this country? Оf the obvious advantages: the developed infrastructure, technical and IT sphere, one of the fastest connections to the Internet, 3 large sea ports and only 2 hours by plane to any European capital. Also, registration of a company in Latvia gives you the opportunity to buy, sell and hand over real estate in any EU country in a simplified manner, without any additional fees. Moreover, the owner of the company created does not necessarily come to Latvia for this purpose – all can be done by the lawyers authorized to them. Due to its geographical location, Latvia can be considered a bridge from the business of the east to the business of the west. Latvia also boasts a well-developed transport infrastructure, air communication, access to the Baltic Sea and a developed banking sector. 

Unlike many other countries, a foreign businessman can own business in full. It is not necessary to share business with the Latvian partner. In the international ranking of ease of doing business called Doing Business, Latvia ranks 23rd, which is a very high estimate for a country that recently abandoned its planned economy. In the “Heritage Foundation’s” ranking of economic freedom, the country ranks 35th. Everyone who has opened his own business or bought a ready-made business has a bonus: he can get the Latvian residence permit. This is an extremely important point, as a residence permit allows you to fully engage in entrepreneurial activity. In this way Latvia accepts businessmen and supports interest from foreign investors.

Latvians are very benevolent, executive, simple, quite calm and very hospitable and all without exception appreciate the national traditions. There are holidays, when business life does not just reduce activity, it stops. And it is necessary to take into account all who work with the Latvian market. And if you are aware of the national holidays and show interest in them, Latvians definitely  will respect you. Not very good quality is secrecy in communication. A Latvian client will rarely say that he is not satisfied with the cooperation, he will simply leave. Thus, the gradually growing economy of Latvia attracts more and more people who want to open their business here. In return, having the opportunity to own assets in Europe, having passed a fairly simple and affordable way to open up the business of his dream.
