Reinis Bērziņš, Chairman of the Management Board of Altum:
“All over the world, the first quarter of this year was marked by significant economic and financial turbulences and uncertainties caused by Russia’s warfare in Ukraine. The sanctions imposed on Russia and Belarus, rapidly rising commodity prices and scarcity of resources, disrupted or blocked supply chains affected a broad range of entrepreneurs, directly and indirectly impacting Latvia’s enterprises and their ability to ensure successful business operations. Together with policy makers, we are actively preparing financial instruments to support Latvian companies affected by the war and sanctions, where ALTUM will be the central institution for cooperation with entrepreneurs. The Cabinet of Ministers has earmarked 94,9 million euros for the support of war-affected companies from the repaid or unused resources in the support programs for Covid-19 -affected companies. While still using all the existing support instruments, we are also continuing work on the European Recovery and Resilience Facility’s climate action programs in the segments of small and medium-sized enterprises and apartment houses, which will ensure more extensive access to sustainable financing in Latvia”.
