Yesterday the American, British, Irish and Norwegian and Chambers of Commerce in Latvia held a business luncheon themed “5 things you must know about grant funding for business” to discuss EU funding for business.
Recently the European Parliament approved the new EU Budget for 2014-2020, approving €960 billion spending plans over the next seven years. In addition to the financial opportunities from the EU funds, EEA/Norway Grants provides €73 million to Latvia over a four year period.
We invited the following experts to share their knowledge and opinion:
• Agnese Cimdiņa, Adviser for EEA/Norway Grants;
• Andris Ozols, Director of Investment and Development Agency of Latvia;
• Pēteris Vilks, Head Cross-Sectoral Coordination Center.
The event was moderated by Zlata Elksniņa-Zaščirinska, Chair of the Board and Country Managing Partner of PwC Latvija.
Experts addressed the main priorities for the new EU funding period 2014-2020, their alignment with the National Development Plan and accessibilty and eligibility of EEA grants for business.
AmCham is a 'must-join' organization for any company of scope or international ambition.
