What people say about Liepaja
David McArthur, IG Latvia director:
“A willingness to learn, a willingness to increase the country’ s and their own standards of living-these are the features that characterize this country and its people”
Gerry Larner, IG Latvia Manager:
"We were on plane, looked at each other and said: "Never come back again". And, thank's to Liepaja City Council, here we are."
Wendy Bowshber:"Do not judge the book from its cover!"
Günter Verheugen, European Commissioner for Enlargement:"Even though Liepaja has had a difficult history, its vision for the future is seen clearly."
Torben Bjørn Banck, Terminal Manager, Baltic Transshipment Center:"We have chosen Liepaja because it is the place from which we can run our distribution the most effectively, at the same time taking the advantage of the special economic zone…I have had only the best relationship with the SEZ authority."
Brian Nesgaard Nielsen, ex-General Manager, Pumac Liepaja:"We have been here for 3 years now, and of course there are some problems, just like everywhere including Denmark. We are very satisfied with our growth and happy to stand where we stand now! But if I should highlight some of the most remarkable things, it is of course the motivation of our employees. We have very motivated workers fully realizing that success of the company is their own success. Also I think that Liepaja is a perfect location for companies that are looking both towards the West and the East, and it is indeed a part of our future here in Latvia."
Christofer Tham, General Manager, Hotel Amrita:"Liepaja’s development during the time we have been here is huge, nevertheless is the potential with its location and possibilities still great. The harbour, the business life and the local authorities supporting it makes it smooth to establish and run a business here. The location makes Liepaja as the natural point for trade between the west and the east.
The beach is marvellous and together with the big offer of music events: from classical and folklore to jazz and rock, it makes Liepaja also a leisure city, and we as a hospitality business experience now an expanding tourism here. We opened the hotel five years ago, but have been in wood business here already for ten years. Now we are looking forward for next ten years... "
