Retiring Lithuanian Parliament (Seimas) has made a wise decision that will affect the economic development of Lithuania for the upcoming decades. Investors’ Forum welcomes a unified political decision to reject the President's veto for the new Labour Code and approval of a compromised both for workers and employers’ act, which was adopted in June.

According Rolandas Valiunas, Chairman of the Investors' Forum Board, "although there are disadvantages in the new Labour Code, it is a big step forward for the whole Lithuania and both its employees and employers. This is also a good news for investors: Lithuanian labor relations will be advanced and formed to increase creation of new jobs and business development in our country. Since it depends on the public welfare, during the last decade Lithuania has felt the benefits brought by foreign investors, the impact of foreign capital to the country's economic growth, creation of new jobs and the importance of a favorable environment for business development”.

Investors’ confidence remains high, however elections and lack of labour regulation reforms are casting shadows

Survey of Investors' confidence index for Lithuania for the second quarter of 2016 reveals that large foreign capital investors remain highly confident in the economy of Lithuania. Although, the level of optimism has shrunk slightly in comparison with the beginning of the year. The largest investors are expecting a continuous growth of demand for their products and services (56% of surveyed top-level managers) and profitability of their companies (50%). A third (29%) are planning to expand their export quantities. 

However, increasing concerns are caused by reduced political stability before the elections as well as prolonged discussions about the labour regulation reforms. None of the surveyd managers expect the political stability to rise. As much as 85% of respondents see labour regulations as the main area in need of attention and reforms.
