As with all the countries formerly veiled by the Iron Curtain, Latvia is in the process of re-establishing an international identity and reputation, but at present, its visibility and competitiveness in the international marketplace remains low. It currently remains reliant on its neighbours for tourism, with six leading tourism-generating countries: Russia; Lithuania; Sweden; Estonia; Finland and Germany.
