Ministry of Foreign Affairs Denmark October 23. and 24. 
Market visit in Lithuania and Latvia
Opportunities within the Defence Sector
23 –26 October 2017
The defence budgets in the Baltic States are in-creasing in order to meet the NATO spending guideline of 2% of GDP. This creates great new business opportunities for Danish companies in the Baltic States.
This market visit is organised for Danish companies working within the field of defence and security. The visit provides Danish companies with opportunities to take part in defence projects and investments in Lithuania and Latvia.
The Ministry of Defence in both Lithuania and Latvia have decided to meet the NATO 2% spending guide-line in 2018, thus allocating 2% of GDP to the de-fence sector. There has even been discussions about going beyond the 2%.
Besides the general increases in defence spending, Latvia will for the first time reach NATO´s goal of spending 20% of the defence budget on military equipment investments in 2017.
In 2017, the defence budget is expected to reach 724 million EUR in Lithuanian and 449 million EUR in Latvia corresponding to a rapid increase in both countries.
