“Lithuania in Figures” is a newly prepared electronic publication. It provides an overview of economic and social development of Lithuania as well as the EU indicators in both Lithuanian and English. The graphs and charts present statistical information on population, education, culture, health, labour, agriculture, construction, trade, transport and national accounts.


This year’s publication is a contribution to the European Year of Skills. The year 2023 has been declared the European Year of Skills. The goal of the initiative is to raise awareness of the importance of skills and to promote their development in all sectors and at all levels of society. This initiative aims to promote investment in skills development and the recognition of skills and qualifications across Europe.

The European Year Skills started on 9 May 2023 – the day on which Europe Day is celebrated.

The European Commission seeks the European Year of Skills to give a fresh impetus to lifelong learning and development of skills across Europe.

Having a workforce with the skills that are in demand contributes to sustainable growth, leads to more innovation and improves companies’ competitiveness. This initiative will help companies, in particular small and medium enterprises, to address skills shortages in the EU. It will promote a mindset of reskilling and upskilling, helping people to get the right skills for quality jobs. 

The green and digital transitions are opening new opportunities for people and the EU economy.

Skilled workers will enjoy better job opportunities and fully engage in society. This is key to ensure that the economic recovery as well as the green and digital transitions are socially fair and just.


Particular attention will be paid to bringing more people into the labour market, in particular women and young people, especially those not in education, employment or training.


“We need much more focus in our investment on professional education and upskilling. We need better cooperation with companies, because they know best what they need. And we need to match these needs with people’s aspirations. But we also have to attract the right skills to our continent, skills that help companies and strengthen Europe’s growth.”



Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission
