Country Report
The article presents an economic outlook for Lithuania from 2008 to 2010. The real output growth is predicted to be moderate given the tightening of the financial conditions, the cooling of the housing market and the less expansionary of the fiscal policy. The global liquidity squeeze is also predicted to pose downside risks to consumer spending and domestic investment.
