The industry employed over 17,000 people in late 2018, Invest Lithuania, the government's foreign investment promotion agency, said.

Laisvis Makulis, head of the agency's Business Services Team, says the GBS sector contributes 1.5 percent of the country's GDP.

"It is important to note that we still have room for growth. We are a relatively unsaturated market in the regional context," he said in a press release.

The United States, the Nordic region and the United Kingdom are the main investors in the Lithuanian GBS center. Nordic companies account for 40 percent of all local GBS centers, but the US is the single leading investor with 23 percent.

Ninety-two percent of all GBS centers in Lithuania are multifunctional, performing two or more functions, the agency said.
