What does the Ministry of Finance do?

The Ministry of Finance takes care of a number of important sectors.

  • Each year the Ministry drafts a state budget.

It is the country’s purse. We take care of this money to ensure that citizens have access to education and health care, to keep the country defended and to be able to pay wages to police officers and firefighters. There are also other important sectors maintained by the state.

  • In Latvia, there are various taxes. The Ministry of Finance supervises them and drafts laws when improvements are needed.

We need taxes to have money in the state budget or purse. Taxes are paid by enterprises and citizens.

  • Latvia is in the European Union. The aim of the European Union is to improve the level of life of its citizens.

Therefore, the European Union provides financial support or money to the Member States in the most difficult situation. The money comes from the European Union funds.

Employees of the Ministry of Finance work so that Latvia could receive money from these funds. The Ministry of Finance also takes care to ensure that the money goes where it is needed the most. This money helps our country to become better and more beautiful.

When the money is allocated to sectors, other ministries are responsible for its successful utilization. The Ministry of Finance supervises it.

The minister manages the work of the Ministry of Finance.

Since 2019, the Minister of Finance is Jānis Reirs.
