Welcome to "The Landscape of Information Technology
in Latvia." This site offers a comprehensive view of issues related
to technology in Latvia, including privatization, the telecommunications
infrastructure, the labor market and the legal environment.
After more than ten years of independence,
Latvia currently has a stable government and relatively strong currency.
The Republic continues
to undergo constant change as it works to achieve greater economic development
and revamp its economy for eventual integration into various Western European
political and economic institutions. A key aspect of this economic
development will be the development of the information technology sector.
Currently, Latvia has inadequate infrastructure to achieve significant
advancement in this area, but progress is being made regularly but slowly .
