Friday, January 22, Davos – President Dalia Grybauskaitė, currently attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, discussed business development opportunities in Lithuania with global business leaders.

The President met with Kent Walker, Google’s Vice-President; Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of Lufthansa; and Frank Vang-Jensen, President of Handelsbanken, one of the largest Swedish banks.

Informal meetings with business leaders were focused on the business-conducive environment in Lithuania – highly qualified and skilled employees, good command of foreign languages and well-developed infrastructure.

“Lithuania offers favorable conditions for competitive business services, information and data processing and servicing centers. We have both good infrastructure and highly qualified workforce. Global companies around the world can benefit from these advantages. And that is good for Lithuania too,” the President said.

This year, Davos has brought together around 3000 business representatives, including Coca-Cola, Shell and Nestle which play a global role in the world’s economy.

At the previous World Economic Forum, held a year ago, the President also met with representatives from the world’s largest companies. The international financial company Nasdaq and the U.S. insurance giant AIG opened their branches in Lithuania last year.
