ADMINISTRATIVE-LEGAL MODEL FOR ORGANISING EXPO 2020 IN DUBAI TO BE CHANGED

In order to avoid potential risks to a successful participation in Expo 2020 in Dubai, the government has agreed to change administrative-legal model that governs further implementation of the project.

The government has instructed the Ministry of Economy (ME) to come to an agreement with the Latvian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LTRK) on termination of current contract, while the association has undertaken to deliver to the ministry all the materials, project ant information related to the project. The Cabinet of Ministers has also instructed ME to find the most suitable procurement procedure to ensure implementation of the next stage in Latvia's participation in Expo 2020 in Dubai.

LTRK found in the beginning of this year that the administrative-legal model governing project implementation is very complicated, because every activity must be taken in a capacity of a structural unit of ME implying large variety of procedures. Both ME and ministers were informed about it repeatedly when trying to find the best solution. Currently the preliminary works have been carried out to start the most expensive part of Expo 2020, i.e. construction of the pavilion, therefore it was necessary to find a solution that would ensure meeting the stated time-frame, quality and funding as soon as possible.
