Lithuania is ranked by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) among the ten top countries with the most open markets for services trade in 2017. Latvia tops the ranking.
Latvia tops the ranking of 44 countries, followed by Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, Lithuania, Denmark, Japan, the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic.
Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius said in a press release on Monday that the OECD’s assessment of Lithuania’s performance confirms that the country has put in place an effective regulatory environment for the service market.
The minister expects Lithuania to be invited to join the OECD at the Ministerial Council Meeting in late May.
