The government has begun its annual campaign to raise public awareness about the country's problems with the black market economy. This is the fifth year that this campaign is held.

This year's slogan is “Everyone can choose a clear path.” The Investors' Forum, which is organising the campaign, says that the scale of the black market in Lithuania is slowly contracting, but that it still made up more than a quarter of Lithuania's GDP last year, or about €9 billion.

The president's office, the government, the State Tax Inspectorate, Sodra, numerous municipalities and more than 100 businesses and NGOs are also participating in the campaign.
