This year the High Council meeting will be held on 25-26 May 2017.

As the main theme for this year’s High Council we have chosen topic “Do!”. By choosing this topic we want to send following messages for the government: have a confidence in your recent actions, be brave for your new implementations, build trust, build your legacy. FICIL would like to acknowledge the positive examples and encourage the government to be brave and keep delivering on the reforms. You can have your say and shape our messages by sending us your ideas about positive actions that Latvian government has taken and actions that the government should continue.
