2. Unsaturated market for easy hiring and scaling

While enjoying continuous growth, Lithuania’s manufacturing sector remains one of the least saturated in the CEE region in terms of jobs created by FDI manufacturing projects. And this is the case in all regions of Lithuania, especially those located further from the capital. These regions combine long-standing industrial traditions with remarkably low saturation levels.
