KIRKLEES engineering firms looking to trade with Latvia have been urged to attend a free seminar.
The newly-opened Kirklees College engineering centre is the venue for the event, Doing Business in Latvia, which will be held from 5pm to 7pm on Wednesday, February 13.
Latvian beer and snacks will also be available.
The event is aimed at firms in mechanical engineering and metalworking, electronics and electrical engineering, technical plastics and textiles.
Event organiser Joanna Lavan, of Honley-based Alfran UK, said: “The engineering sector is one of the leading industrial sectors in Latvia. It produces about 20% of total manufacturing industry output and value added and is the leading exporting sector in Latvia – accounting for more than a third of total exports.
“Latvia is known as the gateway between Europe and CIS and its capital Riga is the largest city in the Baltic States. Latvia is the fastest growing EU economy in 2012.”
The event will include speakers from Latvia and the UK who will give a detailed overview of the country’s engineering sector.
