Reception: Boosting economic cooperation between Latvia and California

Jul 26 from 18:30 till 20:00
US Ambassador's Residence

Christopher Robinson, US Ambassador to Latvia together with AmCham Latvia will be hosting a networking reception to welcome California state delegation in Riga on July 26. The delegation will be led by California State Treasurer Fiona Ma and California Senator Josh Newman. 

The economy of the State of California is the largest in the US and the 5th largest sub-national economy in the world.

Treasurer Ma and Senator Newman are leading a delegation to Riga to develop a Trade and Investment Cooperation Platform to increase long-term economic cooperation between Latvia and California. The Platform will foster increased bilateral institutional and private equity investment, build bridges between regional economic development entities, and support B2B matchmaking in support of market-entry and expansion for Latvian and Californian small-to-medium sized enterprises. 

As State Treasurer Ma sits on the boards of both CalPERS and CalSTRS, the two largest pension funds in the U.S. with investment portfolios of over 850 billion USD, including billions invested across the EU, over 100 billion USD dedicated to climate action, and billions more to emerging private equity funds.

Sen. Newman, as Chair of the Select Committee on Transitioning to a Zero-Emission Energy Future, is a leading voice in California’s effort to transition to clean transportation and energy through policy development, strategic investments, and global partnerships.
 
Treasurer Ma and Sen. Newman will be accompanied by representatives of California State Senate as well as US companies from the energy, finance, private equity, robotics and other industries seeking partnerships in support of Latvian and broader EU market entry.

PLEASE NOTE: The event is open for Corporate Contributing members and AmCham Board. Registration is closed.
