AmCham advocacy efforts are driven by its members. Through the working groups and executive meetings, AmCham develops policy positions on issues impacting its members.

AmCham policy issues are closely aligned with AmCham priorities:

  • Fostering trade and investment Latvia and the U.S.
  • Improving the business and investment climate in Latvia
  • Developing human capital in Latvia

Currently, the Chamber is focusing on the following advocacy issues:

  • Taxation: easing tax burden for foreign investors
  • Healthcare: promoting value-based healthcare and sustainable financing
  • Labor Force: attracting talent and getting prepared for the future of work
  • Lobbying regulation: supporting the development of lobbying regulation in Latvia
  • Overseas Security Advisory Council: identifying security issues and threats through OSAC Riga Council
The AmCham Advocacy Policy provides and communicates recommendations that are grounded in the Chamber's values and correspond to its mission. AmCham, as a policy, does not lobby in the interests of an individual member. It strives to ensure an independent and neutral position in any of its advocacy initiatives.

If you wish to submit an advocacy initiative, please contact the Executive Director at: or 6721-2204.




AmCham brings together companies from different industries & possibilities to improve a common ecosystem.
