Latvia and Germany are closely connected via trade since the Middle Ages, when Riga was one of the main cities of the Hanseatic League. Nowadays, Germany is one of the most popular destinations for Latvian entrepreneurs.
Germany is known as Europe's most easily accessible country because, from its largest cities’ airports, you can fly directly to nearly any place in the world.
Germans are world-famous for their accuracy and high reliability; therefore it’s no wonder that Germany is the world leader in hosting international exhibitions. Every year in Germany about 150 international exhibitions, in which many companies from Latvia take place, are organised. Germany is also one of the global leaders in organising international conferences, gathering the world's greatest minds in the fields of technology, innovation and research.
