Country Report
The article offers an economic outlook of Lithuania for 2006 and 2007. The country's population has steadily declined, from 3.6 million in 1996 to about 3.4 million in mid-2006. Several factors were attributed to the declining population, including low birth rate and substantial outward migration. The migration has caused economic consequences such as labor shortages and mounting wage pressure, with risk spilling over into higher inflation and weaker international competitiveness.
