The Forum of Global Lithuanian Professionals

December 29, 2022
11 AM - 2 PM
Vilnius Town Hall

The Forum of Global Lithuanian Professionals is an annual event hosted by Global Lithuanian Leaders. A prelude to the Global Lithuanian Awards, it is the place where global Lithuanian professionals gather to discuss topical issues and share their ideas for the further progress of Lithuania.

The Forum of Global Lithuanian Professionals is typically attended by 150+ global professionals from 20+ countries and is a great place to expand your network and knowledge.

This year, we are dedicating the Forum of Global Lithuanian Professionals to partnerships and connections. The forum aims to discover new ways in which our relations with the diaspora can serve to strengthen Lithuanian businesses on a global scale and discover new export opportunities.


10:30 - 11:00 | Registration
11:00 - 11:20 | Welcoming remarks
11:20 - 12:30 | Keynote & panel discussion | #TeamLithuania for the economic growth

The last few years were full of challenges and brought plenty of changes for Lithuanian businesses and the export sector. As the nearby eastern markets closed, the companies were forced to look for new opportunities in northern, western, or southern Europe, the US, or far Asian countries. In response to the current situation, the Government is strengthening its network of economic diplomats and creating paths to new markets that Lithuanians are still barely familiar with. Global Lithuanian professionals and their clubs abroad contribute to the diplomatic network as well as the spreading of knowledge and experience of the new markets in the circles of both diplomats and Lithuanian entrepreneurs. The partnership, also called #TeamLithuania, has already ripened some fruits for the economy of Lithuania.
During the discussion, we will talk about the experiences and opportunities for the growth of the Lithuanian economy and export through the global networking of Lithuanians.

12:30 - 13:00 | Coffee break
13:00 - 14:00 | Keynote and panel discussion | The development of Lithuanian ecosystems in the global world

As our country is paying extra attention to the priority economic sectors, their development depends on the whole business environment and ecosystem as much as it does on investments. All players in the ecosystem – founders, researchers, talents, politicians, and investors – are equally important for the progress of the area. Ecosystems of biotechnologies, lasers, and startups, while considered the priority ones, are facing various challenges, and solutions are often found globally. During the discussion, we will try to find ways to develop a sustainable ecosystem and strengthen each part of it with the help of global resources.
