The Three Seas Initiatives (3SI) Summit and Business Forum will take place on June 20th and 21st this year in Riga, Latvia. The 3SI Summit will be opened on June 20th by the President of the Republic of Latvia, Egils Levits. Within the framework of the summit, there will be a closed meeting between the leaders of the 3SI nations, the 3SI’s partners (USA, Germany, and the European Commission), and the guests of the Riga summit, followed by a press conference.

The Prime Minister of the Republic of Latvia, Krišjānis Kariņš, will open the 3SI Business Forum on June 20th. There will be two days of high-level discussions between representatives of countries, international institutions, and companies. The participants of the Forum will discuss the importance of promoting infrastructure connectivity in the 3SI region and attracting investment to the energy, transport, and digitalisation sectors, while also seeking new cooperation models.

Given the current geopolitical situation resulting from Russia's military aggression in Ukraine, internationally recognised industry experts will discuss the region's economic development trends and investment environment, the diversification of energy supply routes and resources, innovative mobility and logistics solutions, and the role of digitalisation in strengthening the region's sustainable development.

The Summit will take place at the ATTA Convention Centre, Krasta Iela 60, Rīga, LV-1003. The Media Centre will be located at the same venue. The Business Forum will take place at Hanzas Perons, Hanzas Iela 16a, Rīga, LV-1045.
