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.

As well as being a country where the EBRD works, Lithuania is also an EBRD donor. Lithuania remains a supporter of the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership Fund, having contributed €134,322 for activitie in ArmeniaGeorgiaMoldova and Ukraine.

EBRD forecast for Lithuania’s real GDP growth in 2022 4.0%

GDP performance in 2020 turned out to be a positive surprise in Lithuania, as output dropped by just 0.9 per cent, among the smallest GDP contraction in the EU. The negative shock in domestic demand was largely offset by a sizable positive contribution to growth from net exports. While domestic services such as tourism,
accommodation and catering suffered substantially, those sectors account for a relatively small share of the Lithuanian economy.
