In Lithuania we focus on:

Supporting investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency. The EBRD continues to focus on promoting and financing new renewable energy generation and improving energy efficiency particularly in municipal and industrial sectors.

Improving the competitiveness of the export sector. The EBRD is promoting cross-border investments by Lithuanian companies elsewhere in our region and supports export-oriented enterprises with a focus on investments in advanced technologies. Investments in regional equity or mezzanine funds are also being considered.

Support strengthening of local banks. The EBRD is supporting the local banking sector, focussing on strengthening sector stability and promoting consolidation.

Policy dialogue. We are conducting policy dialogue with the Lithuanian authorities to support improvements in corporate governance in the financial and public sectors.

The EBRD’s latest strategy for Lithuania was adopted on 13 November 2012

EBRD forecast for Lithuania’s real GDP growth in 2015 2.7%

EBRD forecast for Lithuania’s real GDP growth in 2016 3.2%

This year projected GDP growth rate has been cut down to 2.7 per cent as regional tensions continue to weight on investor confidence and exports. Next year’s GDP growth is expected to reach 3.2 per cent, driven by improving investments and better exports performance as companies managed to endear new markets for goods previously sold to Russia.
