Reviewing the latest event: "How strong alliances keep the pipeline of business with Ukraine open".

Together with Giedrė Dalidėnaitė and Jonas Zaronskis from the Ukrainian-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce we discussed this very important topic. We concluded that oppurtunities are there for those who want to put in the work, form new alliances and are in for the long run. After some time of adjustment and a long breath most companies are happy to say that hard work does pay off! A perfect example was presented to us by Svitlana Knyzhka and Evija Savickė, who told us all about Nova Post and their journey.

Got curious? Stay tuned for the next one, we will see you there!

This week, the Government presented the tax reform to Parliament. It successfully passed the first step and was accepted by Parliament. This means that from now on, it will be discussed in the Seimas committees, and the final vote will take place in Autumn. ✋🍁

Together with network members and the Vice Minister of the Ministry of Finance, Ruta Bilkštyte, we concluded this year's season at . We discussed how the reform would impact employers and self-employed individuals, as the guest speaker mentioned that it would make the taxation of top income more equitable. 💶 ⚖

Huge thank you to the Embassy of Ireland, Vilnius for helping to organise a great event! 💚

Thank you for being with us throughout the year, and we'll see you in September! 👋

For the final time this season, we invite you to our business breakfast! 🤝

The past few months have been filled with discussions about Lithuanian tax reform. Due to the significant amount of information circulating on social media and news portals, it is challenging to determine whether this reform will improve the tax system or worsen the situation. 🤷‍♂️ 💸

We aim to find the answer to this question in collaboration with business representatives and the Vice Minister of Finance. Let's meet and discuss it together:

Last week we met to cover an important topic in Lithuania's business and political environment - corruption. 💸 Under the auspices of the Embassy of Ireland, Vilnius we had very informative presentations by Egidijus Radzevičius from Lithuanian Special Investigation Service and Head of Transparency International Lithuania office Ingrida Kalinauskienė.

During the event we gained a deeper understanding of the legal framework and regulations surrounding corruption prevention. Awareness of these measures is crucial for businesses to navigate the landscape effectively. 🔎 Just as the urgency of taking concrete actions to eradicate corruption and build a fair and transparent business ecosystem.

Thank you to all the participants who made this event a success! Together, we can drive positive change and create a brighter future for Lithuania's business landscape. 💪

Reflecting on recent events, it becomes evident that corruption remains a significant issue in Lithuania. However, there is a silver lining: businesses have the power to contribute to the fight against it. 💪 Therefore we invite you to join us in this month’s business breakfast at the Embassy of Ireland, Vilnius!

During the event we will try to shed light on the mysteries surrounding corruption:
✅ Collaborative efforts between businesses and government entities to combat corruption
✅ The legal framework and regulations surrounding corruption prevention
✅ The impact of corruption on businesses and society
✅ Practical measures businesses can implement to prevent corruption
