To build great business you need great people

From secondary school up, we foster and develop the skills and abilities necessary for modern business. And our success shows. We are 1st in the EU for mathematics, sciences and technology graduates per capita, and have the highest high school ICT literacy in Europe. What’s more, we have over double the EU average of young people study Engineering, Manufacturing and Construction, and surpass all other Baltic States in the amount of ICT professionals we produce each year. So you can see why we are fast becoming a hub for hi-tech innovators such as Wix, and global players like Western Union and Barclays.

In order to sustain hi-tech business growth you need R&D

This is something we implicitly understand, and that is why since 2005, annual R&D expenditure has risen by 11% year on year, and this is why we are ranked 10th in the world for R&D personnel per capita. Close co-operation between the public and private sector, along with academic institutions, is actively encouraged and facilitated by Invest Lithuania. Successful recent initiatives include TechCity Vilnius’ educational initiative with Barclays and CSC, and Thermofisher’s scholarship and training for Biotechnology students. Such active collaboration ensures that the country’s talent stays at the cutting edge, and that Lithuania secures itself on the frontline of modern business.

And, of course, in business communication is key

Almost every young professional is proficient in English, and with two thirds fluent in Russian, a quarter of a million fluent in German, as well as tens of thousands speaking Romanic and Nordic languages, companies are able to service their clients in as many as 26 languages.

Effective communication also requires a high level of cultural awareness, and with many of Lithuania’s best professionals returning from prestigious international universities, we have the international perspective that your business needs. We are striving to develop this capacity, and in 2014 UNCTAD commended recent governmental initiatives aimed at retaining the country’s best international graduates.
