On April 6 the American Chamber of Commerce in Latvia (AmCham) marked its 30th Anniversary with a black-tie dinner attended by President of Latvia Egils Levits and new U.S. Ambassador Christopher Robinson.

AmCham was one of the first Western chambers of commerce established in the Baltic region. Since its establishment in 1993 by 30 U.S. investors, it has grown an now describes itself as a "thought leadership hub", representing over 160 U.S., international and local organizations and individuals.

AmCham President John Tully said: “As I look back at the last three decades and how AmCham has evolved, I am impressed by the role AmCham played as a thought leader, bringing together decision-makers to address key issues for business and society.”

He went on to say: “AmCham continuously seeks to add value to its members who are bonded by shared democratic values and fundamental human rights. In the current geopolitical setting, these core values remain as important as 30 years ago. Our well-established network of members connects know-how, generates new ideas and proposes solutions for our collective benefit”.

Over the course of its existence, AmCham has held over 230 business luncheons, about 60 advocacy seminars, and over 210 business networking events and social events, including 6 U.S. Independence Day Picnics, 12 Opera Nights and 16 Annual Chili Cook-Offs.
