Survey of Investors’ confidence index for Lithuania for the second quarter of 2016 reveals that large foreign capital investors remain highly confident in the economy of Lithuania. Although, the level of optimism has shrunk slightly in comparison with the beginning of the year. The largest investors are expecting a continuous growth of demand for their products and services (56% of surveyed top-level managers) and profitability of their companies (50%). A third (29%) are planning to expand their export quantities.
However, increasing concerns are caused by reduced political stability before the elections as well as prolonged discussions about the labour regulation reforms. None of the surveyd managers expect the political stability to rise. As much as 85% of respondents see labour regulations as the main area in need of attention and reforms.
