The euro which will shortly replace the litas will have a positive effect on the IT services market of Lithuania, however, it will hardly bring any significant changes. Antanas Ursulis, general manager of CSC Baltic which provides IT services, says that the euro will not bring any dramatic changes to working conditions or expectations of employees; nevertheless, the new currency will help Lithuania enhance its image as a reliable and attractive country for investors.
