Agricultural and Food Sector in Lithuania 2011 (English version)


An analytical review of the Lithuanian agricultural and food sector over the period of 2007–2011. “Agricultural and Food Sector in Lithuania 2011” is intended for representatives of governmental and self-governing authorities, scientific research and study institutions, and all interested in the development of agricultural and food sector, fisheries and rural areas.


The publication “Agricultural and Food Sector in Lithuania 2011” is the thirteenth edition of the annual publications by the Lithuanian Institute of Agrarian Economics (LIAE). This analytical economic survey of agriculture, processing industry and fisheries was prepared referring to the statistical information, accountability data of companies within the sectors of agriculture, processing industry and fisheries, and the findings of surveys conducted by the LIAE staff.


The year 2011 was favourable for the Lithuanian agricultural and food sector. Due to good climatic conditions, the volumes of manufacture of a major part of agricultural products increased and purchase prices went up. Consumption that has been decreasing within the recent years on the domestic and foreign markets started augmenting again. As a result the gross value added created in agriculture and related services, if calculated by comparable prices, increased by 1.3% (by preliminary data amounted to LTL 2648.7 million). In 2011 the Lithuanian agricultural and food sector increased export even by 19.1%. Balance of foreign trade in agricultural and food products has been positive since 2004. In 2011 it was by LTL 264 million higher than in 2010 and amounted to LTL 1997 million. National agricultural development was encouraged by the European Union (EU) and national budget support. In 2011 the share of the funds in the Lithuanian budget, assigned for financing of direct and investment assistance in agriculture, intervention and other market regulation measures, amounted to LTL 2.59 billion.


The publication presents changes in the indicators of agricultural and food sector development covering the five-year period focusing more attention on the events and outcomes in 2011. With an aim of retaining the possibility for comparing the key tendencies, data in all surveys is provided following the single methodology and structure.


As in all previous years, some preliminary statistical indicators of 2011 were used. Final economic and financial outcomes will be reflected in the later publications of the Department of Statistics and in the next-year LIAE survey.


The publication is intended for all who are interested in the achievements and problems of the agrarian and food sector. Material provided here might be useful for agricultural specialists and scientists, farmers and entrepreneurs, teachers and students.


Our sincere thanks go the Heads of the Lithuanian Department of Statistics and the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Lithuania and their staff members for provided statistical information and advice. Dear readers, we are kindly looking forward to your remarks and proposals.
