Last week Mr Andrew Soper, Her Majesty’s Ambassador to the Republic of Latvia, and Ms Sanita Bankava, Senior Market Adviser, UK Trade & Investment team, British Embassy in Latvia, visited Baltic International Bank at the invitation of Ms Ilona Gulchak, Chairperson of the Board.
The Embassy officials were received in the bank’s head office (Grēcinieku 6). During the meeting, the bank’s shareholder Mr Valeri Belokon and Ms Ilona Gulchak described the principles underlying the bank’s business practices and told the honourable guests of the plans for the nearest future.
Mr Andrew Soper positively evaluated the bank’s initiative of co-organising business conference "Latvia: More Than You Would Expect".
