Considering the economic growth of the country and increasing inflow of investments in national economy, the further development of Riga as of the central and largest Baltic capital is expected. It is also reflected in the Riga Spatial Plan for 2006-2018 that envisages the expansion of the Riga centre on the left riverbank of the Daugava and creation of several service and business centres.
