GEM 2015/2018 publication

2018 21-12

Check the latest GEM report, written by Marija Krūmiņa and Anders Paalzow. It covers the results of three sequential years of studies, from 2015 to 2017. GEM is a major international research project aimed at describing and analysing the entrepreneurial process across a wide range of countries. It is our belief that the Latvian GEM will not only contribute to an understanding of the factors influencing entrepreneurship in Latvia but that it will also contribute to an informed debate on Latvian entrepreneurship and the opportunities and challenges it is facing.

The Monograph "Competitiveness of Latvian Enterprises in External Markets"

2018 03-09

The monograph “Competitiveness of Latvian Enterprises in External Markets” is a joint work of BICEPS researchers and SSE Riga graduates completed within the State Research Programme SUSTINNO project in the period 2014-2018.

The main objective of the monograph is to better understand the factors that promote exporting of the Latvian enterprises, as well as barriers that firms may face when entering export markets. The monograph consists of two parts. The first part examines similarities and differences between exporters and non-exporters and evaluates factors that affect firms’ propensity to export, with a particular focus on the role of EU fund investments and tax evasion. The second part provides a more general analysis of determinants of efficiency and competitiveness of the Latvian enterprises. Download the monograph
