ABSTRACT
The article presents economic forecasts by the journal "Business Monitor International" (BMI) on Lithuania's budget reforms in 2010. BMI states that the country's most controversial, yet appropriate structural tax reforms are likely to be discarded, citing the lack of parliamentary majority in Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius' ruling coalition and declining public support for the government. BMI forecasts that revenues will expand by an average of 1.5% over the following 18 months accordingly.
