    Meeting of Ministry of Economy and investors – answers to key questions and torn out pages from the foreign press

    Members of Investors’ Forum started this year with a meeting with Virginijus Sinkevicius, the Minister of Economy. The Minister reviewed his work in 2017, presented strategic directions of this year and answered participants‘ questions. As a top priority, he highlighted efforts to reduce shortage of workforce, helping enterprises to receive European Union (EU) financial support and convenient connections with the major capitals of Europe.

    ‘Economy is made by people, so we have to create conditions for people to make it. One of our short-term goals is to strengthen the Migration Department to make the employment of foreigners faster, easier and more transparent. The white list of companies is already a huge step forward. My ambition is to have it updated quarterly.

    However, the shortage of workforce is a complex problem, so we need to look at it more broadly. It is necessary to reform the education system, facilitate employees‘ re-qualification, especially in the regions, as well as to help businesses to benefit from financial support and invest in innovations,’ says V. Sinkevicius.
