LATVIA – Former Prime Minister of Latvia (25/11/2022)
Valdis Birkavs: «There is little cooperation between Latvian entrepreneurs and the government. It is difficult to blame entrepreneurs because they have been looking for cooperation all along. Entrepreneurs do not feel safe because the government does not communicate with them but gives them directives. The systemic mistake is that the Latvian government has not had specific priorities for a long time, which I can only explain by a complete lack of economic thinking. Reaction to specific situations is active, but it lacks foresight» (25/11/2022 interview for Neatkariga).
