Country Report
The article provides a summary of economic, political and business environment risks for Latvia in 2008. New political groups are emerging that could potentially lead to defections from the ruling ranks. The EU authorities in February delivered a rather downbeat assessment of the country's economic prospects in their annual appraisal of the nation's convergence programme. The Latvian government is in the process of devising a strategy to export the country's financial services to others in the wider region.
