Seminar on transportation possibilities and less explored business ideas
Dear Sir or Madam, We kindly invite you to a seminar about transportation and logistics across the Baltic Sea jointly organized by the
Embassy of Latvia, CARGOTO and the Investment and Development Agency of Latvia.
Latvia is the true gateway from EU to the CIS countries. The CARGOTO corridor serves industry in the southern parts of Sweden with transportation needs from the Port of Gothenburg via the Jönköping area to the Swedish east coast and back.
With a sea link from the coast further on to Latvia the CARGOTO corridor could serve as an economical freight route from Gothenburg via Latvia to CIS countries including Moscow and Kazakhstan to China.
