‘’Considering the advantages of Latvia, we need to realize that we are not only technology consumers, but also creators. Therefore, a year ago we decided to organize ‘’5G Techritory’’ Forum, in order to invite the world-leading technology companies, creators of European policy and Latvian companies to Latvia for common discussion and agreement on cooperation opportunities by development and testing of new technologies in the fields of smart city, smart mobility and smart healthcare. For Latvia it is an opportunity to strengthen its positions even more as one of the leading countries of mobile technologies, therefore understanding what 5G technology is and, the main thing, what it will be able to, is important not only for representatives of telecommunication industry,” said Neils Kalniņš, ‘’5G Techritory’’ Program Director.
