FICIL High Council Meeting 2018

FICIL High Council Meeting 2018

This year the High Council meeting will be held on 6-7 June 2018 under the key theme of “Building Trust”.

Background of FICIL HC

FICIL meets annually with the Government of Latvia in High Council meetings. The High Council is represented on one side by senior executives from each FICIL member company’s headquarters, and on the other side by Latvian Ministers and high civil servants. The meetings are jointly chaired by the sitting Prime Minister of Latvia and the selected CEO of a FICIL member’s parent company – the Honorary Chairman.

The HC meetings are intended to facilitate a top-level discussion forum between foreign investors and the Government, to set up structured exchange of information and views between the major investors and the national policymakers. Discussions and resolution from the discussions become part of the Communiqué – a document that structures cooperation and discussions between both parties, to be reviewed during the next High Council meeting.
Investment and Development Agency of Latvia has always been a close partner of FICIL and, together with the State Chancellery and the Prime minister’s office – a co-organiser of the meeting.

Panel discussion

On the first day of the HC events, a public panel discussion will be organised. It is kindly hosted by our associate member SSER and will take place on 6 June from 13:30-17:00 (SSER, Soros Auditorium).

During the public discussion “Building trust”, the FICIL, in collaboration with other experts and policy-makers will explore in more detail two important areas that could significantly contribute to the sustainable economic growth of Latvia: digital economy and tackling economic crime.
