13 June 2018
Vancouver, British Columbia: June 13, 2018 – GoverMedia Plus Canada Corp. (CSE: MPLS) (FWB: 48G) (WKN: A2JF6W) (“GoverMedia” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary GoverMedia Plus LLC signed a partnership agreement with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Riga, Latvia and entered into a cooperation agreement with the Kazan (Volga region) Federal University and Higher School of Information Technology. The partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Riga calls for mutual cooperation in the implementation of measures to support small and medium sized businesses. Specifically, the agreement provides for the creation of a system for assessing the reliability of partners and or participants in international contracts. Under the agreement with the Russian University, GoverMedia Plus LLC becomes a partner of the Department of Digital Analytics and Infrastructure.
Latvia has a population of approximately 2 million people and a GDP of approximately $55 billion USD in 2017. The country joined the European Union in 2004 and integrated the EURO zone in 2014. The partnership with Riga’s Chamber of Commerce provides GoverMedia access to the business community in Riga, to facilitate cross-border transactions between the two countries. Russia represents the largest trade partner of Latvia; therefore, the Company hopes to become the online marketplace of choice for Latvian SMEs to enter the Russian-speaking markets. Strategically, Latvia represents the entry point to the European Union.
The Federal University of Information Technology in Kazan has become one of the most innovative technology hubs in the Russian Federation. Kazan was honoured as “Russia’s third capital” in 2009 and its local policy is to become a silicon-valley type of high-technology environment. The University of IT in Kazan enrolled over 44,000 students in 2014 and it has over 70 ongoing international scientific projects. The agreement with GoverMedia allows the Company to tap into a large pool of highly qualified engineers, programmers, researchers and software developers.
CEO, Roland J. Bopp, commented: “The partnership agreement with the Latvian Chamber of Commerce is a natural expansion of our online business into the Baltic regions first and European Union second. The cultural and language similarities as well as the trade infrastructure between the two countries will facilitate cross-border transactions. In addition, GoverMedia’s platform allows for enterprises to carry out their own due diligence on business counter-parties. We look forward to expanding our operations throughout the Baltics in the future. The Department of Digital Analytics and Infrastructure of the Kazan Federal University are working the leading-edge technologies in the fields of blockchain, artificial intelligence and cryptography. I was fortunate to visit the University on my recent trip. This partnership will insure a large talent pool of top developers.”
