Facts:

The Lithuanian language is among the oldest in the world.

96% of people in Lithuania know one or more foreign languages.

Driven, we create and implement what others are just talking about

We’re convinced that in a world that’s evolving as fast as ours, only the bold and proactive get ahead, so we foster that attitude in daily life. We’re leaders in the laser and biotech industries. We’re contributing to new advances in financial technology and cyber security. We’re building a business-friendly environment. And in culture, too, our creators enjoy strong visibility and recognition on the world stage. All this shows the country’s drive to excel and achieve.

Constant pursuit of excellence creates abundant talent and communities of solid professionals.

A small country without a lot of natural resources has only one option – to turn its know-how into a resource. Hence the engine powering Lithuania is constant growth and improvement. And that’s possible in dialogue with the world: adopting best practices and sharing our own. Major global companies have discovered Lithuanian professionals’ hunger for knowledge, our flexibility, resolve and ambition, our habit of setting the highest standards for ourselves.

Freedom to create sparks searches for new ways and opens up new possibilities.

For decades, our talents were held in check with bans and restrictions, so we learned subtle ways to talk and express ourselves. That’s a skill we kept even after we regained our freedom and the ability to let our creative potential flow. In Lithuania, we value the courage to experiment and the openness to accept innovations.

Connecting with nature lets you rest from life’s fast pace and experience peace and harmony – so you can return to new challenges and to creating innovative solutions.

Since ancient times, nature has been part of Lithuanians’ spiritual life and is integral to Baltic culture. Most people here associate their country with nature and the sea. Asked why life in Lithuania is good, the largest share of respondents in a recent survey (45 percent) said: “Because nature is always close by.”
