    RIGA, Jan 12 (LETA) - Latvian parliament speaker Inara Murniece (National Alliance) during her visit to China called on the municipal and business representatives from several regions in China to build cooperation with Latvia, the Latvian parliament's press service said.

    The parliament speakers from the Nordic and Baltic countries (NB8) during their visit to China had meetings with the leaders of the local people's congresses and business representatives from five Chinese provinces.

    "These meetings reaffirm that China is open to cooperation in business, innovations, transport, education and culture. Latvia is ready for this cooperation," Murniece said.

    She underlined China's huge economic potential and said that transport and logistics was the Latvian priority in cooperation with China. Latvia is particularly interested in China's Belt and Road Initiative, and involvement of representatives from China's regions is important for implementation of the initiative.

    The Latvian parliament speaker urged the Chinese partners to step up cooperation with Latvian universities. She said that any cooperation was based on contacts between people therefore she welcomed the growing numbers of Chinese tourists visiting Latvia and urged the Chinese partners to launch direct flights to Riga.

    The Nordic and Baltic parliament speakers had meetings with business and local government representatives from several Chinese provinces in Beijing and Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province.
