The research involved the work of 80 economists, lawyers, political scientists and social scientists who describe the pandemic situation and economic opportunities from different viewpoints. The study, conducted over nine months, has been named by the Academy of Sciences as one of the most important achievements in Latvian science of last year.
Experts hope that the study will serve as a handbook for politicians to make decisions based on data and research.
Dean of University of Latvia Faculty of Business, Management and Economy Gundars Bērziņš said: "There is no single industry to be supported. The conclusions are that nearly all industries are to be supported, but only those businesses which will be competitive in post-crisis and crisis conditions."
The monograph is available online in Latvian.
