Here is a new week and according to our every Monday traditions – here is a new issue. Today we will quickly look through another country of European Union, which is like a sister-country to Lithuania – Latvia.
Latvia offers all the infrastructure and services companies need to operate, at levels that meet or exceed European standards. That means higher opportunities in different job sectors.
Latvia has one of the fastest telecommunications infrastructures in the world, providing companies seamless connection with customers and partners abroad. So we can see how developed and modern country Latvia is.
Latvia possesses 2,406 kilometers (1,495 miles) of railroads that extend toward Russia, Belarussia, and the other Baltic States. Both they and the cars that roll across them are aging and in need of repair. A network of 59,178 kilometers (36,773 miles) of roads, roughly a third of which are paved, allows access to all regions of the country. While private car ownership has risen in that last years, railways and buses transport the majority of commuters.
Major seaports located at Riga, Ventspils, and Liepaja, which remain ice free throughout the year, are superbly linked to both rails and an extensive network of roads, allowing the domestic and international transportation of goods. Latvia, which is dependent on the importation of fuels, also serves as a transit area for outgoing supplies. The port of Ventspils is the terminus for the Volga Urals oil pipeline (which extends into Russia) and can simultaneously accommodate 3 large tankers. The port at Liepaja, the deepest port in the Baltic Sea, was formerly operated for Soviet military purposes and is in need of major modification for commercial purposes. The port at Riga, the busiest in Latvia, is responsible for the greatest movement of trade goods.
Here is a short review on Latvias’ infrastructure, but we are sure that it would make positive opinion about this beautiful, perfectly developed in different sectors, country.
