The Export and Innovation Prize

The aim of the Export and Innovation Prize is to promote the competitiveness of Latvian companies domestically and internationally by promoting export growth and increased quality, the manufacturing of products with a high level of added value, and the need for innovations in this regard. Each year there is a competition to evaluate what companies have done in the previous year, with awards given to the most successful companies and products. The competition is organised by the Latvian Economics Ministry in partnership with the Latvian Investment and Development Agency (LIAA).


President of Latvia Valdis Zatlers has been patron of the prize since 2008. At the final ceremony, he congratulates the winners and presents them with their prizes. 
Winners have a chance to take part, at no cost to themselves, in the foreign visits of government officials and the trade missions that are organised by the LIAA. They can also use a sign of quality on their products and in their informational materials.
