Supporting and fostering close links with the Latvian community abroad

The network of diplomatic missions and consular posts of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia is instrumental for strengthening the links connecting Latvia with our compatriots living abroad, the diaspora organisations and the media – which includes building and sustaining a dialogue. In view of the massive emigration flow over the past two decades, cooperation with the Latvian diaspora has become one of the priorities of the Foreign Ministry work aimed at promoting political and civic participation of the diaspora, preserving Latvian identity and bonds with Latvia, and strengthening cooperation with compatriots abroad.
