Liga Abramovica recently joined the Foreign Investor's Council in Latvia (FICIL) Executive Board and will serve on the Board for the remainder of Alvis Erglis term. She is the Chief Financial Officer at Orkla Latvija and also holds a seat on the company’s management board. She has experience in banking, consulting, insurance and now in food manufacturing industry.
On October 27, FICIL and the Finance Latvia Association have sent a letter to the political forces forming the coalition asking to identify one responsible institution/entity, which will comprehensively address climate and energy issues, even if it is necessary to create a separate ministry.
Currently, FICIL is in the process to re-design the work groups. FICIL is planning to have only a few main work groups with additional sub-groups and experts. Each of the main work groups will host meetings and move forward with set agenda while the specialized pop-up groups will work with interested members in specific fields but will align work with the larger work group priorities. Experts will only be involved when specific needs arise to consult on the next steps.
Looking ahead towards November:
