About the FICIL Sentiment Index
FICIL Sentiment Index is an annual report which follows development of the investment climate in Latvia from the perspective of foreign investors, identifying the most significant challenges in the business environment. It is a qualitative study, based on in-depth interviews with investors, carried out by FICIL in cooperation with SSE Riga.
FICIL aims to create evidence-based policy through realistic and forward-looking recommendations. The goal is to improve the overall business environment and investment climate in Latvia. The FICIL Sentiment Index addresses topical issues, such as demographic decline, digitalisation, economic competitiveness, quality of the higher education system, rule of law, as well as economic and financial crime issues.
The preparation of the FICIL Sentiment Index 2019 is generously supported by the Norwegian Embassy in Riga and the U.S. Embassy in Latvia. Furthermore, we are grateful for cooperation and support from Lursoft.lv.
