The Commission released on Wednesday its recommendations based on a detailed analysis of the Lithuanian economy and on the country's national reform and stability programs.

"In order to improve the ability of the Lithuanian budget to adopt a more effective social policy and increase public investment, the European Commission recommends improving tax compliance and broadening the tax base to sources less detrimental to growth," the European Commission Representation in Lithuania said in a press release.

Although the introduction of a new pension indexation formula in early 2018 should ensure the fiscal sustainability of the pension system, the Commission recommends that Lithuania tackle the problem of pension adequacy, which is among the lowest in the EU.
