"We expect to accomplish this objective by 2020 so that 40 percent of the country's exports would come from the regions. Since a larger share of Lithuania's production is already located in the regions, I believe that this goal is achievable," said Mantas Nocius, head of the business promotion agency Enterprise Lithuania.
