Australia and New Zealand are interested in Lithuania's high technologies, which means that the country can expect further contacts and development of business cooperation, Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius said.

Linkevičius, who is wrapping up his visit to Australia and New Zealand, told BNS that these countries are interested in Lithuania's life sciences, information and laser technologies.

The minister expects that cooperation between the countries will expand in the future.

"If somebody takes interest in a certain area, we are ready to provide more information and I have no doubt that we will continue this dialogue," he told BNS by telephone from Australia.

Contacts between Lithuania and these two countries have been scarce until now due to the long distance and little is known about what they can offer to each other, Linkevičius said.

Australia is the world's 12-largest economy.
