This is a rare opportunity to meet such a high-ranking official visiting Riga and Latvia, the only one of the three Baltic countries being visited. During the luncheon, there will be an opportunity to learn about the official’s ‘view from London’, reflect on the general economic situation and export matters, as well as discuss DBT priorities and ask any other questions of interest.
