- About Lithuanian
Lithuania joined the Eurozone on the 1st January 2015 and the country’s economic growth is estimated at 3.1% for 2015, making it one of the fastest growing economies in the EU. Since joining the EU in 2004, Latvia has received 180 million Euros in assistance and development funds to help modernise the country’s economy. The geographical location of Lithuania, plus other strengths such as funding and support for businesses, a strong transport infrastructure, and world leading ICT infrastructure make it an attractive proposition for business looking to export into the country.
Currently the UK mainly exports the following goods to Lithuania: mineral and chemical products, plastics, machinery, food and drink, tobacco products and transport vehicles. However there are areas which the Lithuanian government is encouraging investment in such as energy, infrastructure, education and training, life sciences and ICT.

70% of Lithuanians understand or speak Russian due to historical and political circumstances. In the Vilnius region, Polish is another language that is widely spoken/understood. That said Russians or Poles would not be able to understand Lithuanian unless they studied it. Also there is no link between Lithuanian and Estonian which has more links to Finno-Ungric languages than Indo-European languages.
- English loanwords in Lithuanian:
The influence of English and loanwords is noticeable in Lithuanian and the spelling of such words has been adapted to fit with the phonetics of the Lithuanian language. For example:
Universitetas – university
Futbolas – football
Baras – bar
Opera – opera
Kompiuteris – computer
However Lithuanian equivalents have also been created for a number of foreign words in order to minimise the amount of loanwords in the language.
