RIGA - There are several issues on the Cabinet's agenda that could have been focused upon more during its 100 days in office, shadow economy is among them, Latvian Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis (Unity) said during today's press conference dedicated to this event.

The prime minister pointed out that many measures were carried out, however, there is still much work to be done, for example – under-the-table pay and value added tax rates, writes LETA.

Dombrovskis, however, believes that the implemented measures for combating shadow economy brought results. The law on "zero declaration was adopted, reverse order of value added tax payments for construction companies – introduced, transportation of excise goods from third countries – limited, all of this was achieved during the government's 100 days in office.

The prime minister believes that the government should continue to attract investments. Some things, however, should remain up to courts, for example – Palink insolvency case. Such cases can negatively affect Latvia's investment environment.
