    Statement of the Chairman of the Board
    Rolandas Valiūnas

    Dear Members,

     Today, more than ever I wish I could begin this foreword as usual, by applauding Lithuania’s achievements, such as record-breaking 11th place in World Bank’s Doing Business 2020 rating or 47 FDI projects attracted by Invest Lithuania last year. I would continue by noticing challenges that we are well aware of, such as lack of qualified personnel and necessity for our Government to focus on improvements in the education system and migration procedures. And finish with some words to inspire us to continue our effort in improving business conditions and investment climate in Lithuania.

    Investors’ Confidence Index for Lithuania (ICIL) for the first time in the history of this study reached a negative value Publication

    Investors’ Confidence Index for Lithuania (ICIL) for the first time in the history of this study reached a negative value – currently ICIL final value is 0,909 out of 2. The fact that the value of the index is less than 1 indicates that Lithuanian investors present more negatives assessments of the country’s investment climate than the positive ones. Naturally, the negative change is not unexpected in the current situation caused by a coronavirus pandemic.  This decline was determined by a market and economic downturn and pessimistic prospects for the future.
