"The prime minister said at the meeting that Lidl's arrival has increased competition among shops, which creates preconditions for prices to decline, and that it would be even more beneficial for Lithuania if Kaufland came as well," Skvernelis' spokesman Tomas Berzinskas told BNS.

Both Lidl, which opened its first stores in Lithuania in 2016, and Kaufland are part of Germany's Schwarz Gruppe.
