On 3 July, the Minister of Transport and Communications Mr. Algirdas Butkevičius received Mr. Raj Sital Motwani, Honorary Consul in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, in Vilnius.

During the meeting, Minister Butkevičius provided information about the intentions of the Ministry of Transport and Communications to organize a conference for Hong Kong entrepreneurs in Klaipėda next spring, and invite not only owners of transport and freight companies, but also representatives of the Hong Kong Government.

Minister Algirdas Butkevičius also encouraged Hong Kong entrepreneurs to more actively search for the investment opportunities in Lithuania. “At present we may offer favourable conditions for foreign investors in Klaipėda and Kaunas economic zones which have good transport connection with the Klaipėda State Seaport,” said Mr. Butkevičius. The Minister also noted that in the future Lithuania plans to build three logistic centres which will contribute to the development of the transit services in the country.
