Lithuania -Shadow economy envisaged -May 18, 2015

Initiative aims to develop a shadow free economy.

The ‘No Country for Shadow’ initiative aims to develop a responsible, active, publicly conscious society and to canvass citizens to help reducing the scope of shadow economy in the country.  It is estimated that the shadow economy has shrunk by 0.9 per cent last year.
