US Internet giant Google will provide free-of-charge training about the Internet and the use of technologies in Lithuania in the framework of a digital skills training project, Google Growth Engine.

"It is our goal to have as many people as possible discover the advantages of the Internet. I believe there are benefits for anyone," Vytautas Kubilius, Google development chief for the Baltic states, said in Vilnius on Tuesday in his presentation of the Google Growth Engine.

In his words, the platform was presented worldwide in 2015, and it was adapted for the Lithuanian market earlier this year. Kubilius could not specify the sum invested by Google into the program.

Google Growth Engine includes 89 classes about digital space and the use of Internet.
