Lithuania’s economy toslowdownby 2.7%
Lithuania’s gross domestic product will grow by 2.7 percent next year, half a percentage point less than projected six months ago, the country’s FinanceMinister Rasa Budbergyte said on Tuesday. The growth forecast has been revised downward due to Brexit and geopolitical challenges, Budbergyte said. “We must be ready to meet these challenges. Therefore, we need to adopt a realistic and prudent budget which meets the rules of fiscal discipline,” she was quoted as saying by local media.
