The Defence Ministry in early December launched the search for the director of the newly-established Defence Resource Agency as preparations for an overhaul of the procurement system are nearing completion.

The ministry made the director selection process public after coming under criticism from politicians over a lack of transparency.

Lithuania is set to meet NATO's 2 percent of GDP defence spending target for the first time next year, with around 873 million euros allocated for the defence budget.
