Lithuania Country Risk Report Q2 2016 - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Feb 19 2016

GDP growth will accelerate in Lithuania over the next two years thanks to improving trade conditions in the region and strong levels of investment. The increase will be sustained over our longer-term outlook by growing domestic savings from which future investment can be drawn, as increasing inflation dampens levels of consumption.

Lithuania to record a slightly larger budget deficit over our short-term outlook on the back of increase expenditures and stagnant revenue growth. However, much like its Baltic neighbours, the deficit will be small and manageable, financed through a small increase in public debt.

Despite a return to strong export growth in 2016, Lithuania will record a small current account deficit, which will continue throughout our long-term forecast period. Nonetheless, robust financial inflows will ensure the deficit remains sustainable.

The Social Democratic Party of Lithuania (SDP) will perform well at the parliamentary elections in October 2016 and will hold onto their current position as the majority partner in a coalition government. While the SDP will ensure a degree of continuity in current government policy, the composition of the junior coalition partners may well shift in favour of the Liberal Movement.
