Spotlight on Latvia-U.S. trade in Chicago

Oct 25, 2017
The Latvian-U.S. business conference Spotlight Latvia took place on October 26 at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago and featured AmCham members: Valmiera Glass, AccentureBaltic Technology Group, Ellex Klavins, Eversheds Sutherland Bitans, Microsoft Latvia, Apply, airBaltic and Orkla. The conference will be "the largest in the history of bilateral relations," according to the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Ambassador of Latvia to the United States Andris Teikmanis and outgoing Minister of Economics Arvils Ašeradens delivered the opening remarks with more than 40 Latvian business representatives taking the trans-Atlantic trip.

Latvian companies presented themselves to an audience of more than 100 U.S. companies. There were seven sessions by Latvian companies - talking about the existing and potential success stories of US companies operating in Latvia, and vice versa.

The conference was marked by a special event - the launching of the Latvian Chamber of Commerce in the United States (LatCham). Its main goal is to unite under one umbrella those Latvian companies that are operating in the U.S., as well as those American companies that are located in Latvia.
