Public Debt in Lithuania
Lithuania - Public DebtAhead of the presidential election on 12 May, the contest remains a close three-horse race and is likely to head to a runoff. Opinion polls suggest that Ingrida Simonyte, a former finance minister; Gitanas Nauseda, a former chief economist at SEB; and current Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis are locked in a dead heat. Notably, the frontrunners’ platforms have leaned heavily on existing foreign policy, while most have voiced support for tax reform. Meanwhile, available first-quarter indicators paint a mixed picture; industrial output growth lost ground, hinting at a slowdown in economic activity. On the other hand, retails sales picked up in January-February, pointing to sustained private consumption growth. Furthermore, exports accelerated in the same period despite heightened uncertainty surrounding global trade and feebler demand from the European Union.
