In a grilling lasting more than three hours, Dombrovskis fielded questions on everything from his views on austerity to the performance of the euro as a currency and whether his financial planning would be in line with EU social commitments.
In his concluding remarks Dombrovskis said: "I'm willing to work closely with the European Parliament, having been a European parliamentarian myself, and to look at how we can deal with the challenges we are all facing."
Talking about his experience in turning around the Latvian economy during the 2009-13 period Dombrovskis admitted there was still work left undone on income inequality, taxation policy and strengthening energy independence.
I very much hope the new government which will be formed will be willing to... deal with those very serious challenges which Latvia is facing.
"I very much hope the new government which will be formed will be willing to take those recommendations and actually deal with those very serious challenges which Latvia is facing."
"Regarding the work of the Commission it's a new structure so not everything is fine tuned to the latest details yet... but we a re clearly ready and willing to work in a spirit of cooperation together as a team."
He identified economic growth, employment, wages and the "European social model" as areas people were particularly concerned about.
Shortly after the hearing Marita Ulvskog, a Swedish MEP who is Vice-Chair of the EP Committee on Employment told reporters: "This was a very interesting hearing as we are living in a European union with 27 million unemployed inhabitants and you could really feel it in the room.
"There was lots of tension and lots of sincere interest in both the questions and the answers."
Throughout the hearing a surprising number of MEPs questioning him seemed unable to grasp the fact that his name is 'Dombrovskis' and he was repeatedly referred to as 'Mr Dombrovsky' despite the fact his name was displayed prominently in the chamber.
