The informal meeting of the so-called 'Arraiolos' presidents will be organized in Riga in the fall of 2018, the Latvian President’s Chancellery reported.
The Arraiolos Group brings together heads of nine European states: Latvia, Finland, Austria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal and Slovenia.
The government on April 2 supported a proposal to increase revenues of the President’s Chancellery by €360,192 in 2018 in order to pay for the Arraiolos group meeting in Riga.
Arraiolos is a small town in Portugal where the first such meeting took place in 2003. Subsequent meetings of non-executive presidents of European Union member states have been dubbed Arraiolos meetings.
