RIGA - The number of regions in Latvia might be increased as a result of the ongoing public debate on the planned administrative-territorial reform, Environmental Protection and Regional Development Minister Juris Puce (For Development) said on Latvian Television on Thursday.
Puce said that it has already become clear in discussions on the reform that the government-approved plan of Latvia's municipalities will be modified. "It is possible that after the recent discussions a new region might be created," the minister said.
