During the meeting, the Ambassador of Ukraine to Latvia, H.E. Oleksandr Mischenko, said that this is the first business delegation from Ukraine to visit another country since the beginning of the war. The Ambassador also emphasized that Latvia, as an ally of Ukraine, which has a great influence in the European Union, has provided very significant support in the field of humanitarian aid and defense. The two countries have developed high-quality cooperation, which must be continued in the context of the ongoing war in Ukraine, both in the political sphere and in the business sphere.
LDDK General Director Līga Menģelsone said: “LDDK has been actively cooperating with colleagues from the European Business Confederation BUSINESSEUROPE, which forms the common position of European employers on what is happening in Ukraine. Although several countries had different attitudes, the LDDK strongly represented its position, fully supporting Ukraine. We know what freedom and democracy are, and we know what it means if people and states do not have freedom and democracy. Today's meeting is a bridge for the further development of cooperation to safeguard the values of democracies, promote the well-being of citizens and the growth of business."
Both sides agree on the need to develop joint cooperation at the company level, including the establishment of Latvian-Ukrainian joint ventures, in order to operate successfully in local and global markets.
