The economy of the Republic of Lithuania is open to international competition, and the country’s economic development and human well-being are closely linked to exports. A large share of gross domestic product (GDP) is generated by exports of goods, works, and services. The Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce and their association, in order to develop the export of products, works or services rendered by Lithuanian companies, to evaluate and publicize the tendencies of this process and to use favorable conditions, organized the competition “Lithuanian Export Prize”.
During the following event Invertus has won the Small Export Award. Linas Gudonavičius, CEO of Invertus, said: “This award is an excellent measure of the success of the entire Invertus team. We are delighted that this year brought new events and partners, including PrestaShop Connect Baltics, the largest e-commerce event in the Baltics, organized together with PrestaShop and participated in the “Rinkis Prekę Lietuvišką 2019” event in partnership with the exposition center. We hope that next year will bring even more opportunities for growth and expansion.”
