Investment Advisory Council

The Investment Advisory Council is a high-level forum that brings together government leaders and chief executive officers of global companies to discuss key foreign investment and sustainable development issues. The goal of the IAC is to continually enhance Lithuania’s competitive and dynamic economy and promote foreign direct investment.

The Investment Advisory Council submits its recommendations to the Lithuanian Government, Ministries and other state institutions on investment policies and regulations. During each meeting, the topic of discussion is chosen based on suggestions from different IAC members as well as investors in Lithuania. The topics and discussions focus on issues like “expanding business services”, “attracting high-value manufacturing,” “sustainable and relevant workforce competencies,” etc.

The Government of Lithuania created the Investment Advisory Council on the 25th of November 2009 through Resolution No. 1570. The IAC is chaired by the Minister of Economy of the Republic of Lithuania, and includes the top executives of 19 international corporations, such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, ERGO, Barclays, SEB, TeliaSonera, etc.
