XVII International Scientific conference

31st March 2016

Turiba University

It is important that Latvia as a small nation with a small economy is able to create and offer products and services that are competitive both in the local as well as global market. Enterprises that are able to react fast to the changing business environment and diversify their product offer will survive under circumstances of growing competition.

Topicality of the Conference

Competitiveness is an important factor for each and every enterprise and the nation as a whole. The competitiveness of a nation depends on the success of its enterprises to a large extent.  Competitiveness is based on business efficiency indicators at the enterprise level including corporate strategy, management skills, marketing and price and cost efficiency. However, it is clear that business carried out in a particular territory by a registered enterprise is subject to national legislation, all kinds of direct support as well as indirect support provided for by the country through its taxation policies, international and bilateral relationships, export and import opportunities as well as development and transfer of technology.  A lot depends on the events and measures carried out at the national level, on the business environment being developed in that particular region.
