“The loss of markets in Russia has produced a substantial negative effect on our agricultural sector as well as the entire economy. Economic relations depend directly on political relations and foreign policy. It’s the task of our government and the president’s office.

"We are looking for alternative markets. For example, next year we plan to send our agricultural attaché to China who will have to look for ways to enter the markets in that country as well as to search for new markets in Japan, Vietnam, Mongolia and Korea,” Virginija Baltraitienė said in an interview to the Kauno Diena daily.

She added that she had already met with the Lithuanian attaché in the US to discuss potential in North and Latin America.
