"We are pleased that the revised GDP for 2014 compared to 2013 increased by 3 percent rather than by 2.9 percent as it was announced in the preliminary estimates. The higher growth was driven by the growth of the construction industry, also, the Government's decisions regarding housing renovation under the new programme," Lithuanian Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius said on Monday, referring to revised data from Statistics Lithuania.
