Entrepreneurship has long been a bridge among nations. Official diplomatic bodies are no strangers to this concept. As Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) unfolds, you will notice diplomatic policy shapers joining the celebration.

Here is how four nations – Vietnam, the United Kingdom, Latvia and the United States – are reinforcing ties through GEW.

Vietnam - United Kingdom

Vietnam kicked off its Global Entrepreneurship Week with a seminar for young entrepreneurs and support organizations, and on the occasion of a visit from the Duke of York, Prince Andrew, to Vietnam. The seminar was called “Vietnam - United Kingdom Potential Opportunities for Cooperation.”

“The Duke of York shared the British experience with startups, incubators, ecosystem building,” reported Thuy Le from GEW Vietnam.

United States - Latvia

In Latvia, under the theme of “Entrepreneurship: Cultivating the Habits of Success,” the United States Embassy is organizing a range of events throughout the month to complement Global Entrepreneurship Week. The U.S. government has an effort to deepen business and trade ties with Latvia and the European Union, both bilaterally and through the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). As part of the Embassy’s GEW events, entrepreneur Lawrence Wright will visit Latvia for five days to deliver a series of lectures, seminars and workshops in Riga, Daugavpils, and Rezekne.
