"Latvia’s 2020 Productivity Report" provides a scientific basis for state aid criteria that boost companies' productivity. The criteria were developed based on the analysis of the ORBIS database on the indicators of Latvian companies. In the future, productivity reports will be developed annually with the aim of conducting an independent, objective and science-based analysis of competitiveness and productivity, and developing policy recommendations for the Latvian government.
