preliminary draft

IV Italian-Lithuanian Business Forum

(Vilnius, Hotel Radisson Blu 19 October 2022)

Italy and Lithuania together: recovering and facing the new challenges

The vibrant economic relations between Italy and Lithuania – with more than 2bn € of bilateral trade a year and many new investment projects in both countries – needs to face the double challenge of fully recovering from Covid-19 pandemic and the severe global consequences of the brutal aggression war that Russia is waging in Ukraine since last February. The Business community of the two countries, private as well as public, is called to react and adapt to an increasing inflation, serious risk of European recession and the necessity to continue the implementation of the Green deal and the innovation processes of renewable energy paths defined and largely financed by the European Commission. In such framework, the IV edition of the Italian Lithuanian Business Forum intends to put light on these new challenges and discuss ways to face them successfully, identifying and developing new cooperation projects.
