RIGA -  The Cross-Sectoral Coordination Center has drawn up the final version of the National Development Plan for 2021-2027 (NAP2027), which will soon be put before the National Development Council and the National Tripartite Cooperation Council, LETA was told at the Cross-Sectoral Coordination Center.

Of the 1,400 proposals that were received during the first public debate on the draft document, 613 proposals have been included in the plan, 447 proposals have been partly accepted and 334 proposals have been rejected. 

The Cross-Sectoral Coordination Center's final version of NAP2027 will now be reviewed by the National Development Council and the National Tripartite Cooperation Council before it is submitted to the Cabinet of Ministers and then Saeima for approval.

Originally, there were three strategic goals defined in NAP2027: equal opportunities, productivity and income, as well as social trust, but in November lawmakers ordered to also include regional development as a fourth strategic goal. 

The National Development Plan is the main medium-term development planning document in Latvia.

The priorities in the National Development Plan for 2014-2020 are sustainable economic growth, competitiveness of the state and regions in international markets, strengthening of the middle class, supporting policy that leads to stable and sufficient income and decent work for everyone, ensuring stability for demographic growth and people’s wish to live and return to Latvia.
