Lithuania - Labour force and migration - August 31, 2017

Although an immigration boom was recorded this summer 2017, the number of those leaving the country outweighs the arrival numbers. According to the statistics, the majority of the immigrants are returning citizens, however, the numbers of arriving foreigners is also gradually growing. The total population shrank from 3.7 million residents in 1990 to 2.8 million people in 2017 due to emigration and aging. Emigration is spurred by large income inequality; the majority of emigrants changing for Western Europe look for higher wages. In the European semester reform program, special attention is given to reducing emigration.
