The status quo of Latvian state-owned enterprises and its representative enterprises

Original publication available at the China-CEE Institute website.


The state of the art of Latvian state-owned enterprises (here and after SOEs) in this briefing will be described and analyzed based on the report conducted by KPMG[1] Baltics “State ownership policy review in Latvia”[i] and latest available annual report of Cross-Sectoral Coordination Centre (CSCC) of Latvia[ii]. The detailed reports and the current briefing are dedicated to understanding the development stage of SOEs in Latvia.

Description of the sector is provided to introduce the main indicators and shareholders of the SOEs in Latvia. The value of SOEs is growing twice less intensive than the value of private companies in Latvia and one of the possible solutions is initial public offering to boost financial resources and corporate governance standards.

These issues of shareholding management in the country is raised and decentralized control problems are described in this briefing.
