Economic Worries in Lithuania
Lithuania, a country that surrounds Latvia, Belarus and Poland, has been a member of the World Trade Organization for a few years now. The country has become popular for its support of trade with Russia and other countries around the central part of Europe. However, there have been some substantial concerns with regards to the way how Lithuania is being treated with its economy in mind.
Lithuania has one of the continent?s worst unemployment rates. Nearly one out of every five people living in the country is unemployed. This is one of the top rates in Europe.
There is also the concern about economic growth. Growth has been flat in recent years. This is due to the lack of imports that the country has received in recent years. The country has reduced its ability to handle imports as a means of trying to spend money on promoting itself to other countries. This has harmed the country?s economic growth.
Also, the exports that Lithuania has been producing are not too varied in terms of where they are heading out to. It is true that much of Lithuania?s products are becoming popular in Russia. However, there is very little support for products outside of Russia and other parts of Europe. This is especially concerning because of the rise of countries like India, China and Brazil. These are countries that Lithuania might profit off of if it sent more commodities and items to these areas.
There is also the concern about how illegal economic activities are occurring in some parts of Lithuania. The country has become a notable hub for the transport of a variety of illegal drugs. These include such drugs as cocaine and ecstasy. The concerns over how these drugs are being handled in various parts of Lithuania have created a concern over how to control this illegal part of the economy.
