Economic Diplomacy of the Baltic States
Economic Diplomacy of the Baltic States/ Ed. by Andris Spruds, Karlis Bukovskis. - Riga: Latvian Institute of International Affairs, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, 2014. - 144 p.
"Economic Diplomacy of the Baltic States" is a scientific publication dealing in detail with the modern day problems of the promotion of economic interests. Authors from various backgrounds and countries analyze the central agents and actors involved in promoting the economic interests of Latvia, as well as Estonia and Lithuania. Being relative newcomers to the global economic system, the Baltic States have quickly learned about the instruments available, and used, by other countries. The main challenge, although, remains the size and experience of public institutions and businesses dealing with Western countries, and so called "Eastern countries", in attracting investments, enhancing trade relations, and competing in the transport sector. This publication is an effort of the Latvian Institute of International Affairs with fundamental support by Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.
