In March 2016 AmCham in cooperation with the Latvian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) launched a joint program "Gateway to the USA" with the aim to promote trade and investment between Latvia and the U.S. and to encourage Latvian companies to do business in the U.S. In addition, AmCham signed a cooperation agreement with LCCI in order to strengthen bilateral trade.
