Latvian Association of Local and Regional Governments (LALRG)

The Latvian Association of Local and Regional Governments (LALRG) is a public organisation associating local governments of the Republic of Latvia on voluntary basis. It was founded in December 1991. In accordance with the Article 96 of the law "On Self-Governments" the LALRG has authority to represent local governments in the negotiations with the Ca¬binet of Ministers as the LALRG associates more than a half of all types of local governments. 118 local governments of Latvia are the members of the LALRG – 8 cities and 110 municipalities. The LALRG functions as a representative, advocate and advisor of the local governments in Latvia and Europe. We contribute to the development of municipal policies, solve common problems and defend interests of local governments. More about LALRG:
