    Too early to speak about opening of labor market - Latvian PM

    RIGA, Jan 12 (LETA) - The needs of business people have to be taken into account but it would be premature to speak about opening of the Latvian labor market, Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis (Greens/Farmers) said during a visit to Jekabpils in south-eastern Latvia.

    Kucinskis met with the Mayor of Jekabpils, Raivis Ragainis, and local municipal and business representatives. He spoke to them about the ongoing reforms in education and health care and said that the government would make all efforts to ensure proper functioning of the new e-health system, the State Chancellery said.

    The matters concerning the economic growth, including employment and the approval procedures in construction, were discussed during the meeting. It was stressed that Latvia planned to take several steps to simplify the construction-related procedures, including cutting the time for approval of a construction plan from current 192 days to 74 days.

    The Jekabpils municipal officials informed the prime minister about topical matters, including infrastructure development in the municipality, upgrading of drainage systems and the security situation.

    During his regional visit to Jekabpils, Kucinskis will also visit two local companies - Margret and Sedumi.
