A stable, transparent and investment-friendly environment is a few of the many benefitsthe country has to offer.
A member of the European Union and the Eurozone, Lithuania is home to many internationally acclaimed companies and industries that have profited from its geographic location, a skilled and professional workforce, an innovative region and a flexible tax system.
Located on the crossroads between the European Union and wider international community. Lithuania is a popular transit country renowned for its well-developed transport infrastructure. With its four international airports and a major Northern European highway Via Baltica stretching through some Lithuania’s most important cities, such as Kaunas and Marijampole, Lithuania is an appealing choice for logistically managed enterprises. After the completion of Rail Baltica, connecting Germany with Finland, the country’s transit position will be enhanced.
Highly Skilled and Educated Workforce
Lithuanian education system produces highly skilled specialists whose professional outlook and quick learning abilities have made them desirable employees not only at home but abroad, for example in Scandinavia. In recent years we have witnessed an increased popularity in technology and engineering studies with local industries and incoming investors being the beneficiaries of young eager employees adopting their skills and expertise. In some regions, such as Marijampole, technology students account for about 20 per cent of technology and engineering students.
In Latvia and Estonia, most industries are mainly located in their respective capital cities, Lithuania features a more diverse regional economy with each region having its own strengths and opportunities. For example, southwestern Lithuania has been traditionally known for its thriving food, agriculture, wood, textile, machinery and furniture industries, which are exported internationally due to their high quality produce and competitive pricing. A number of international successful companies including IKEA and CIE Automotive Group are already investing in Marijampole County: as a result the South West of Lithuania is becoming a fast growing economic region, prosperous for the local economy and international investment.
