RIGA - Latvian Prime Minister Aigars Kalvitis said the Latvian School of Public Administration should begin teaching European-level civil servants to "produce documents, coordinate and analyze them in European categories" in 2015 during Latvia's presidency in the European Union.

Kalvitis said on television that Latvia was ready for the EU presidency. "I believe we are ready to do much more than run the EU. We have the courage," the premier said on LNT. "Running the EU, of course, is much more complicated than running one country -- Latvia, therefore we need highly qualified employees, especially the technical staff."
