Berzins laments end of the rail lines

Feb 14, 2014
From wire reports, LIMBAZI

The closing of railroad lines is one of the biggest mistakes ever made in Latvia, and must be rectified in the near future if Latvia wants to maintain the development of its rural regions and towns, President Andris Berzins said during his regional visit to Limbazi (northern Latvia) on Feb. 13, reports LETA. During his visit, Berzins met with local residents who inquired if railroad lines closed in the past could be reopened in the future.

The president visited Emils Melngailis Museum in Igate, where he learned of the most important events of the composer's life and received an invitation to attend events dedicated to the composer's 140th anniversary.

Berzins also paid a visit to Igate Church of St. John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene. Later the president visited Normunds Bomis' bakery Lielezers, learning about the company's plans for conquering export markets and its development strategy.

He visited several schools: Ladezers Primary School and Limbazi Gymnasium. He talked with the children, urging them to never stop acquiring new knowledge, to study and learn a profession which will make them independent, capable of providing for themselves and their family, and to pay their debt to those who supported them during studies.

The president also met with Limbazi Town Council members, discussing the region's development.
