Nerijus Mačiulis, chief economist at Swedbank Lithuania, says that although Lithuania's economy contracted by 0.6 percent in the first quarter of this year, such an economic stumble nevertheless did not halt job creation or growth of wages: the number of employed people rose by 1.7 percent in a year, while an annual growth of average wages stood at 4.3 percent.
