"(The visit) is important for Lithuania, as the country is a member of NATO, which is also involved in the making of security decisions in our region, has served in the air-policing mission, and economic cooperation is also important," Grybauskaitė told the national radio LRT.

In her words, Turkey is an important business partner, as exports to the country grew by a third over the first half of 2014 alone. Therefore, the president has pledged to help businesses to search for new markets and gain grounds in Turkey, which offers a huge potential.

Grybauskaitė's agenda in Turkey includes meetings with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and opening of a Lithuania-Turkey business forum. The president is accompanied by a delegation of 22 businesspeople representing the food industry, services, the transport sector, biotechnologies and laser manufacturing.
