The year 2020 has presented us with new challenges never seen before. These challenges, however, are leading to evolutionary developments in decision making processes and work methods at an increasing speed. Road networks in the Baltic States are regarded as mayor drivers of the economy at the moment and I am convinced that road networks will retain their significance as a backbone of the transport system in all our countries. It is my sincere hope that in August, 2021, we will be able to meet at the 30th International Baltic Road Conference and that interest in this event will be expressed both by our cooperation partners with whom we have long and friendly relations and by representatives of new organisations and companies who might provide new and untraditional views on developing the road sector and solving its problems. We look forward to meeting you in Riga and promise that the last days in August 2021 will offer wide opportunities both for creative work and networking!
