"Lithuania today is a country of opportunity. More and more people come to believe that they can realize their initiatives, start a business or make a difference in politics. More and more investors are taking a better look at Lithuanian ideas. They value Lithuanian employees. So Lithuania is the place where the bravest of visions have a chance of success," the president is quoted in a press release.

According to the president, it is important that bright and creative Lithuanians from all over the world come back not only in their thoughts and words, but also return through their work. It will create the necessary conditions to fully use the potential of the Lithuanian economy, democracy and civil society.
