  • Kaspars Rožkalns (LIAA)
  • Ilze Znotiņa (FIU)
  • Zlata Elksniņa Zaščirinska (FICIL)
  • Reinhold Schneider (Schwenk)
The discussion was moderated by Mr Morten Hansen, Head of Economics Department at SSE Riga.

FICIL member Reinhold Schneider from Schwenk emphasised that a huge issue for Latvia is grey economy that distorts compliance culture. He mentioned that he does not see many financial and economic crime prosecutions. Ilze Znotiņa, Head of the Financial Intelligence Unit stressed that the FIU is trying to facilitate a safe investment environment rather than trying to endanger real investment.
