"This is a prestigious award for our energetic and driven young agency. We are delighted that this year 15 companies have established offices in Vilnius. This means new investment into the city and its infrastructure. For instance, we have received investment in the city's street-lighting system," said Justinas Pagirys, the manager of the Investment development department. "This prize is a sign for us that we are on the right path. We recognise that we would not have been able to achieve so much without the input of the businesses operating in Vilnius, universities, the municipality, and every single resident of Vilnius."
