Lithuanian export forecasts: from simplistic joy to shock models

“Enterprise Lithuania” focuses on boosting the businesses suffering from the effects of coronavirus

Entrepreneurship and export development agency “Enterprise Lithuania” is launching an initiative to support businesses “No quarantine on the Internet” and will advise anyone who wants to transfer their activities/businesses to the virtual space quickly and easily.  Entrepreneurs who are already using virtual space for their businesses are encouraged to register their online stores and we will seek to share information about them with as many people in the country as it is possible. “Enterprise Lithuania” has also decided to integrate into this program the unified e-commerce solution which was developed during this weekend’s hackathon “Hack the Crisis”.

All experts agree that now the most important thing for the businesses is to communicate, negotiate a win-win situation, and make decisions while feeling responsibility and solidarity.

Lithuania has more than enough potential to become one of the leaders in the biotechnology field. This is the conviction of Agnė Vaitkevičienė, the head and the co-founder of the first and so far the only producer of individualised advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) in the Baltic countries. According to her, medicines developed according to the needs of each patient are the future of medicine, to which Lithuania also contributes.
