Next year Lithuania's economy should grow 2.7 percent, a lower indicator than projected by the Finance Ministry but more than the majority of other European countries, says the Economist Intelligence Unit of the British business daily, The Economist.

"(Prime Minister) Algirdas Butkevičius of the Social Democratic Party leads an ideologically diverse coalition but all parties are agreed on the broad direction: an open economy, close alignment with Western powers in foreign policy and strong support for European integration," reads the publication The World in 2015.

According to The Economist, energy security will be a policy priority in Lithuania next year.

Lithuania's Finance Ministry expects the country's gross domestic product to go up 3.4 percent in 2015, while the European Commission expects a 3.1-percent increase.
