In the face of the pandemic, businesses and institutions in all countries began looking for solutions to contribute to faster management of COVID-19. Lithuania is not an exception: Lithuania exports and entrepreneurship agency “Enterprise Lithuania” promptly mobilized and took the initiative “Business against COVID-19”. This initiative aims to coordinate the Lithuanian businesses who can supply and manufacture personal protective equipment (PPE). The list of companies producing or providing PPE prepared by the agency includes more than 200 Lithuanian companies, of which as much as 30% are manufacturers capable of supplying their manufactured PPE.
In the first week of quarantine, the entrepreneurship and export development agency “Enterprise Lithuania” initiated the business support initiative “No quarantine on the Internet”, which per one month gathered 1000 Lithuanian online shops under one domain www.internetekarantinonera.lt. It brought together 100 professionals who have become mentors for businesses that are looking to digitize their activities and 20 partners who have offered support to make it as easy as possible for the businesses to move into a virtual space.
