Baltic News Network - - News -

On 3 Novem­ber, Lat­vian Prime Min­is­ter Māris Kučin­skis par­tic­i­pated in the open­ing cer­e­mony of World Food In­dia expo in Deli, In­dia. In his speech, Kučin­skis said that food pro­duc­tion is one of the most im­por­tant sec­tors of Latvia’s econ­omy.

«This in­dus­try in Latvia has adapted its prod­ucts to the needs of mod­ern con­sumers. De­mand for Lat­vian prod­ucts con­tin­ues grow­ing in dif­fer­ent ex­port mar­kets. This is why I pro­pose com­bin­ing my coun­try’s good prac­tice with In­dia’s scale,» said Kučin­skis. The expo also em­pha­sized the mod­ern glob­al­iza­tion trend. «Glob­al­iza­tion on its own is not enough to en­sure eco­nomic growth and wel­fare for so­ci­ety – it is no less im­por­tant to pay at­ten­tion to food safety,» said the prime min­is­ter.

«Latvia al­ready de­vel­ops dis­tri­bu­tion cen­tres for In­dia’s ex­port prod­ucts headed for EU mem­ber states. It would be a new Am­ber Way that con­nected Baltic and In­dian peo­ple thou­sands of year ago,» added the prime min­is­ter.

The open­ing cer­e­mony was also at­tended by In­dia’s Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Damodar­das Modi, as well as min­is­ters from Den­mark, Ger­many and Italy.

It is re­ported that the expo in Deli is also at­tended by busi­ness­men in­ter­ested in en­ter­ing In­dia’s mar­ket and its trade net­works that would as­sist with Lat­vian prod­ucts reach­ing their end con­sumers, as well as study mar­ket specifics and con­sumers’ de­sires. Kučin­skis will re­main on his visit to In­dia un­til 6 Novem­ber. Dur­ing his stay, he will hold meet­ings with In­dia’s Pres­i­dent Ram Nath Kovind and In­dia’s Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Damodar­das Modi.
