Details: The minister believes that investment is needed to improve the road network, railway infrastructure, port and airport infrastructure in Latvia and throughout the region, and that the available funding from Europe is insufficient.

"We are negotiating a common stance with like-minded countries from our region and the EU to obtain additional funds for projects and investments," Vitenbergs added.

He emphasised the importance of attracting EU funds to Latvia and noted that significant work has been done to improve the infrastructure of the single European transport network.
