Next week, Latvian Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis (Unity) will meet with Transport Minister Aivis Ronis and transport sector representatives to discuss progress with the new train procurement contract.

The prime minister believes it is necessary to move forward with the contract much more actively. Dombrovskis has discussed this issue with Ronis several times, attempting to draw particular attention to it, writes LETA.


This issue requires a more active movement forward, therefore the prime minister plans to discuss it with Ronis, transport sector representatives and the involved parties in the nearest future.


As reported, the current amendments to the new train procurement contract do not envisage considerable changes, Rigas vagonbuves rupnica co-owner Aivars Locmelis said in an interview on "Rietumu Radio" today.


Today, Pasazieru vilciens will send a letter to Spain's Construcciones y Auxiliares de Ferrocariles (CAF), urging to lift the status of confidentiality from the contract and avoid any expenses until the conclusion of talks regarding the contract and its amendments. CAF will also be urged to provide specific deadlines for the amendments sent by Pasazieru vilciens on June 11.
