"Nasdaq's decision to establish itself in Vilnius confirms that Lithuania's growth potential is huge while our specialists are recognized in the world for their skills and knowledge. Lithuania will be even more visible on the global map of investments," the president said.

Dalia Grybauskaitė underlined that the national stock exchange and other capital market institutions were established in our country immediately after the restoration of independence, paving the way for Lithuania's return to the market economy. It was strategically important for our country to have a viable local capital market.

According to the president, this market has grown and developed together with Lithuanian business, providing it with fresh opportunities to attract the necessary funds, increase its transparency and contribute to the creation of jobs.

By investing in Lithuania, Nasdaq - the world's largest provider of securities trading technology, quotations for securities and services - contributes to creating jobs and developing our country. Its newly opened centre in Vilnius draws the attention of companies from other countries and shows them an example to follow.

The president expressed her strong hope for a successful and mutually beneficial partnership between Nasdaq and Lithuania in strengthening the local capital market as well as working with global financial markets and the most advanced technologies.
