Central bank projects slower growth for Lithuanian economy

The Bank of Lithuania forecasts that this year, due to the worse situation of exporters, the country's GDP will grow 2 percent. The previous forecast was 2.7 percent. Next year, economic development is projected to accelerate to 3.4 percent (the previous projection was 3.5 percent).
