"A very similar amount to this year's is planed, around 200 million euros," Vilius Šapoka told the parliamentary Committee on Budget and Finance on Wednesday.

According to the minister, the shadow economy is shrinking for natural reasons, including economic growth, but major progress has been achieved in this area by the State Tax Inspectorate.

"Those additional measures of fighting the shadow economy it is taking … are giving the result," the minister said.

Different surveys show that shadow economy accounts for 15-30 percent of Lithuania's GDP.
