Although last year Latvia attracted 32 new direct foreign investment projects, which is by 25 percent fewer than in 2020, more new jobs were created in these projects -2,662 than the year before.

In terms of investment projects, 17% of investors are interested in expanding R&D projects in Latvia. In comparison, only 3% in Estonia and none in Lithuania are interested in R&D, showing in which direction Latvia is heading.

In fact - 96% of Latvian investors are extremely positive about the performance of their cleantech and sustainability business ecosystem and think that it’s better than Europe’s overall. About 66% of the investors are ready to make first-time investments or willing to invest more. This is significantly above the European average at 53% and tops Lithuania at 60% and Estonia at 53%.
