A fund of around 60 million euros is planned for strengthening the region, with the majority of the money coming from the European Union.

Misiūnas told BNS Lithuania after the Cabinet sitting on Wednesday that the plans still needs some coordination over the upcoming weeks, and projects would start receiving funding in the fall.

"We listened to various comments during the sitting, and the ministers voiced their support for the initiative. But there were also certain comments, and we plan meetings of ministerial teams to introduce changes to the plan," the minister said.

According to the Ministry of the Interior, the biggest challenges include infrastructure and a network of public services that do not match residents' needs, territorial concentration of individual residential groups and growth discrepancies
