Lithuania is a young and vibrant country and during the last 20 years we have invested heavily in people and brought together the talents who speak the business language.
Students in Lithuania are encouraged to acquire and improve the skills required in the modern business world as early as possible. Today our students in secondary schools are proudly the most computer literate in the whole of Europe and we have the highest number of IT graduates in comparison to other Baltic states.
To ensure high technology business development, it is necessary to encourage scientific research. Therefore, expenditure for R&D has been growing annually since 2005, and Lithuania is a leading country in the Central and Eastern Europe for university-industry collaboration in R&D.
Partnership of public and private sectors
The partnership of public and private sectors and scientific institutions is actively promoted to ensure that Lithuania does not lack qualified professionals meeting the market needs and to also make sure the Lithuanian business keeps up-to-date with the world trends.
Almost every young professional in Lithuania is fluent in English, two-thirds also speak Russian, 250,000 Lithuanian citizens also speak German, and tens of thousands also speak Romance and Nordic languages. Therefore, some of the international companies operating in Lithuania serve their clients in as many as 26 languages.
