Lithuania is on course to become the new member of the eurozone. After successfuly overcoming the crisis on its own terms, its economy and perspectives for the future are expected to grow. The continuous isolation of Lithuania from the European energy infrastructure is unacceptable and therefore we need to work together to overcome that.
The EU is an essential tool to build a more prosperous and secure future. But it is by no means perfect, and must be significantly reformed if it is to deliver for its citizens. The EU is often too bureaucratic and hampers businesses with excessive regulation. There are still too many key markets such as telecoms, transport and energy policy that need further liberalisation. By opening up new markets in Europe and overseas, we can create new jobs, stimulate innovation and lower prices for consumers.
