Advocacy

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 aligned with AmCham priorities:

  • Fostering trade and investment between Latvia and the United States
  • Improving the business and investment climate in Latvia
  • Strengthening human capital of Latvia

Currently, AmCham focuses on the following policy issues:

  • Taxation: easing tax burden for foreign investors
  • Healthcare: promoting value-based healthcare, digital health, and sustainable financing
  • Talent & Labor Force: attracting and maintaining talent and getting prepared for the future of work
  • Investment promotion: improving the investment climate and promoting Latvia as an FDI destination
  • Digital and AI affairs: exploring the benefits of the digital economy and AI to increase competitiveness, transparency, and innovation 
  • 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 but strives to ensure an independent and neutral position in any of its advocacy initiatives.
 
Members are welcome to identify their initiatives through our working groups or by contacting the Executive Director at: liga.bertulsone@amcham.lv.
