On February 18, 2020 the Government of Latvia made a historic decision to support reforms in the governance of higher education institutions. The conceptual report, developed by the Ministry of Education, is aimed at introducing a more transparent governance model with separate decision-making and executive roles and aligning study programs with the labor market demand. The new model is believed to improve the quality and increase internationalization of higher education. More information is available here
On this important decision-making date AmCham Board Member Roberts Melbardis participated in the Meeting of Cabinet of Ministers emphasizing the importance of promoting excellence in education and science.
On February 5, 2020 the Chamber expressed support to efforts of the Ministry of Education and Science to reform the governance model of higher education institutions.
