Over the past few years Lithuania has become a premier location in the Baltic region for foreign investors for a variety of reasons. First of all, it’s a high-skilled, low cost alternative to production in the West and is well located for eastward-targeted businesses. Secondly, Lithuania can boast huge increases in foreign investment, as well as a stable currency and a great investment environment.


Lithuania welcomes foreign investors and businesses to take advantage of the special ready-for-business locations, including 2 free economic zones (FEZ), 4 industrial parks (IP)  and 5 integrated science, studies and business centres (valleys).
