"I am proud to be part of AmCham - the leading business organization which plays a key role in improving the business climate in Latvia and enhancing the trade and business relations with US. One of the current top priorities is growing labor shortage.

I look forward to working with AmCham, its members and other stakeholders to tackle this challenge and ensure Latvia is an even better place to live, work and do business."

In addition, I would be pleased to contribute the joint communication of all international investors towards promotion of education system's quality of Latvia in order to meet the needs of employers from various industries."
