ABSTRACT
The article reports on the risk status in the political, economic and business sectors of Latvia. Increased funding for the Latvian Association of Large Cities is expected to increase the government's narrow political support base. The narrowing in the country's current account deficit is projected in view of expected slowdown in its key export markets and in domestic demand. Also discussed are the legal actions launched by the European Commission (EC) against Latvia due to the perceived lack of independence of its national telecoms watchdog.
