"The leaders of the PLJS highly contribute to creating Lithuania's image in the world, maintaining the Lithuanian identity and attracting investments to Lithuania. By frequently returning to Lithuania, you participate in discussions with representatives of business, science, culture and politics, you seek best solutions for building modern Lithuania," the prime minister said in a press release.
