Under Lithuania's Constitution, the head of state has the duty to give the State of the Nation Address on the situation in Lithuania and internal and foreign policies. It will be Grybauskaitė's ninth State of the Nation Address.

In her last year's speech, the Lithuanian president criticized the ruling parties for protracted state management confusion and uncertainty over some reforms. She also paid attention to a bad situation in the social security area, criticized the quality of higher education and state enterprises and also lacked reforms in the healthcare system

The president also stressed the need to eliminate political corruption and oligarchic lawlessness.

Grybauskaitė was elected president in May 2009 and re-elected for a second term in June, 2014.
