WELCOME TO THE DANISH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IN LATVIA
News and Activities
Denmark's Constitution Day - June 5! This year we shall celebrate it individually. Nevertheless - Grundlovsdag is there! The day honors the Danish Constitution, as both the first constitution of 1849 and the current constitution of 1953 were signed on this date of their respective years. Denmark is one of only a handful countries in the world to not have an official national day, but Constitution Day is sometimes considered the equivalent of such a day. It is also widely considered to be a day for celebrating Danish democracy.
Dear DCCL Members,
It seems like the most distant period between us is over soon. At least current situation allows us with confidence to announce the yearly Nordic Go-Kart Championship 2020 taking place in Jelgava.
Date: June 10, 2020
Location: Sports and Recreation Centre "Rullītis", Aku ceļš 1, Jelgava
The program is like we are used to - we gather a bit before 18:00, register, then it comes warm-up, qualification and the final. All participants will be driving in two teams.
Since this kind of sport is weather sensitive – let’s keep an eye on weather forecast and adjust the clothing from sporty comfortable to waterproof comfortable if necessary. If you have your own helmet – please take it along.
Please register ASAP since the places for the participation are limited to 24.

Brexit happened on 31 January. Then again, it did not since Britain is in a transition period until 31 December 2020. What can we expect from negotiations between the UK and the EU during this process? And, crucially, what will be the implications for the Latvian economy of these negotiations as well as from Brexit itself?
The forecast on the topic of BREXIT is offered by Morten Hansen, Head of Economics Department, Stockholm School of Economics in Riga and Vice Chairman, Fiscal Discipline Council of Latvia.
