Business

Until the 1950s, Latvia was a poorly industrialized agricultural country, which only developed into an industrial-agricultural state during the Soviet period with the expansion of the industrial base. In 1990 Latvia was the Soviet republic with the highest economic output per resident. In the first years of independence (1991), economic development initially experienced a sharp decline; it did not stabilize until the mid-1990s. The road to a market economy and the global economic integration of Latvia turned out to be problematic, especially due to its close ties with the Russian economy. In 1996, the privatization process, which had only progressed slowly until then, especially of large companies, was accelerated by political measures. Liberal economic policies had led to sustained economic growth. The upswing gained additional momentum when Latvia joined the EU in 2004 Gross domestic product (GDP) double-digit growth rates. The global financial crisis plunged the country into a severe recession. The economy shrank by 4.2% in 2008 and collapsed by a further 18% in the following year, the highest decline of all EU countries. Only an international rescue package could prevent national bankruptcy. The Latvian government initiated a tough austerity and reform course aimed at budget consolidation. Economic output has been growing again since 2010. The gross national income (GNI) per resident was US $ 14,740 in 2017; the unemployment rate (still over 20% in 2009) is given as 9.9% for the end of 2015. Latvia has been part of the euro zone since January 1, 2014. Check 3rjewelry to see Latvia for Nature Lovers.

Foreign trade: Latvia’s foreign trade fell sharply as a result of the economic crisis in 2008/09; was able to partially recover from 2010 (export value 2015: 10.9 billion €; import value: 12.9 billion €). 78.9% of imports and 73.1% of exports are within the EU; the main non-EU trading partner is Russia. The most important export goods are wood and wood products (2014: 16.6%), food, chemical products, metal goods, machines and electronic products. In particular, crude oil and gas as well as crude oil products and electricity, chemical products, food, machines, electrical appliances and consumer goods as well as motor vehicles are imported.

Agriculture

Two thirds of the arable land (around 30% of the Latvian territory) is arable land, one third is meadows and pastures. The agrarian reform initiated in 1989, which dealt with the privatization of the sovkhozes (state property), was legally regulated in 1992 by the “Law on the Privatization of Land”; until 1996 applications for reimbursement from land could be made. Larger companies with a new legal form have rarely emerged from the former collective farms; they mostly disintegrated completely and their inventory has been distributed. In the course of the 1990s, a large number of small private farms emerged. There is often a lack of modern agricultural machinery and equipment. Nevertheless, Latvia exports dairy products, meat products and grain. In addition to forage crops (cultivated on around half of the arable land), the most important crops are grain, potatoes and rapeseed. Around 7% of all employees work in agriculture and forestry (2014), their share of GDP is 3.3%.

Forestry: Of the three Baltic states, Latvia has the greatest forestry potential. About half of the country’s area is covered by forest. Wood and wood products are among the country’s most important export goods. In 2015, 12.9 million m 3 of wood were felled.

Fishing: Deep sea fishing is of particular economic importance, especially for herring, sprat (export to Russia) and mackerel. The catch in 2014 was 120,300 t.

Natural resources

Due to the lack of domestic raw materials, Latvia is dependent on their imports. Only peat, which is used both domestically for domestic fires and exported as peat litter, as well as building materials such as lime, sand and clay are extracted to a large extent.

Energy industry

Apart from hydropower (hydropower plants on the Daugava) and peat, there are hardly any energy sources in Latvia. A significant proportion of electrical energy (around 40% of consumption) is mainly imported from Estonia and Lithuania, natural gas and oil mainly from Russia and Lithuania. Fossil fuels (crude oil, hard coal, etc.) account for around 40% of primary energy generation, and hydropower for 60%.

Industry

Latvia was one of the leading industrial regions in the USSR; however, his factories were part of the division of labor in the Soviet economy. A large part of the industrial plants were out of date at the beginning of the independent economic development, so that the industrial companies were not competitive on the world market. In the meantime, a major structural change has taken place, including investments in modernization. The most important industrial sectors are mechanical engineering (agricultural machinery, engines), the electrotechnical-electronic industry (especially in the field of communications and household technology), the textile, clothing and leather industries, chemical fiber production, wood processing and paper, food and building materials industries. Main industrial centers are Riga, Daugavpils and Liepāja. Around 24.0% of all employees work in industry and construction (2014), their share in GDP reaches 23.4%.

Tourism

Tourism is one of the growing industries. In 2014 about 1.43 million foreign tourists visited the country; revenues were US $ 955 million. The focus is on the medieval old town of Riga (UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997), the castles from the time of the Order, the sandy beaches of the Baltic Sea and the numerous lakes and forests.

Transportation

Latvia has a well-developed transport infrastructure. The rail network has a total length of (2014) 1,853 km, of which around 260 km are electrified. The road network covers around 72,400 km, around 20% of which are paved. The planned expansion of a continuous, approximately 1,700 km long motorway from Helsinki via Tallinn (ferry), Riga and Kaunas to Warsaw and on to Prague (“Via Baltica”) should better connect the Baltic states to the Central European road network. Inland shipping, which is particularly important for the transport of wood and building materials, is only possible on 85–135 days a year on the 347 km long waterways from Düna, Kurländischer Aa and Windau; The shipping traffic on the Daugava is severely hampered by numerous rapids and sandbanks. Ventspils in the north-west is one of the most important ports in the Baltic States, mainly potash salts, chemical products, grain and general cargo are handled here. Riga has one of the largest container ports in the Baltic region (351 200 TEU; total cargo handling in 2014: 36.1 million t). The former Soviet military port of Liepāja was converted for civil use. In contrast to Riga, the ports of Ventspils and Liepāja are ice-free all year round. The international airport is located on the western periphery of Riga.
