EU Member States - Latvia and Latvian Laws (Likumi)

PULS.LV - Professional statistical system of Latvia has superb, very professionally done pages, which give one a feeling for the sophistication which is being achieved in the internet arena in one of the new EU Member States. Take a look. Especially the opening page is easily understandable (many color graphs) even if you do not speak Latvian.

Clicking on any one of the links at the top of the page takes one to websites ranked by traffic, for example, to likumi (laws), where the top listed site is, which has links to Latvian laws, including those relating to the European Union at Latvijas VÄ“stnesis (Latvian Herald, Ltd), the official journal of Latvia. Latvijas VÄ“stnesis is a "private company owned by the government (represented by the Ministry of Justice)" and is financed by income from revenues raised by the journal (a most interesting means of public finance, showing what can be done if governments have to be creative to raise needed monies).

As stated at the European Forum of Official Gazettes:

"The publication of legal acts in Latvia is regulated by the Law on Enforcement of Legal Acts. The Latvijas Vestnesis ["Latvian Herald, Ltd"] is the Official Journal of Latvia.

The Publishing House of the Official Journal is a private limited company, 100% owned by the State. The Publishing House is subordinated to the Ministry of Justice. The publication of the journal is published from the sales revenue
