RIGA - The growing number of bilateral projects show the successful cooperation of Latvia and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins (New Unity) said during the meeting with OECD Secretary General Mathias Cormann.

The officials during the meeting discussed Latvia's close cooperation with OECD, the organization's initiatives on climate and public governance, and OECD's cooperation with the third countries.

Karins commended OECD's contribution to the fight against climate changes, disinformation and to strengthening democracy, marking engagement of Latvia's specialists in these activities. It is important for Latvia that also in the future the OECD is able to find solutions to these global problems, finding the best governance standards through research and experience exchange.

The prime minister said that the OECD also serves as a useful platform for promoting economic and governance reforms in the third countries. OECD cooperation with Eastern European and Central Asian countries is especially important for Latvia.

Karins also extended an invitation to Cormann to visit Riga in March 2022 when the regular OECD economic report on Latvia is presented.
