Līga Baufale, head of the ESF project "EURES network activity in Latvia", said:

"It is very important for Latvian nationals who live and work abroad, but are considering the possibility or have already decided to return to Latvia, to be informed about the labor market situation and job opportunities in Latvia, as well as about action to be taken upon their return. 

"Finding a suitable job in Latvia and the timely and correct execution of all necessary documents related to moving are prerequisites for a successful return. Webinar participants will not only be able to receive advice on what to do when moving, but also to get current information about work opportunities and living conditions in Latvia, and share with other potential remigrants and their families their experience gained while solving issues related to relocation."
