Agricultural and Food Sector in Lithuania 2015 (English version)


The publication “Agricultural and Food Sector in Lithuania 2015” is the seventeenth edition of the annual publications by the Lithuanian Institute of Agrarian Economics (LIAE). This analytical economic survey of agriculture and processing industry was prepared referring to the statistical information, accountability data of companies, and the findings of research conducted by the LIAE staff.


In 2015, gross agricultural output (at current prices) increased by 1.1 %. While the exports of agricultural and food products, as compared to 2014, decreased by 3.8 %, the exports of products of Lithuanian origin did not decline. Balance of foreign trade in agricultural and food products has been positive since 2004. In 2015, it was 1.6 times higher than in 2011 and amounted to EUR 899 million. National agricultural development was further encouraged by the European Union (EU) and national budget aid. The funds allocated in 2015 for agricultural direct and investment support, intervention and other market regulation measures were by 23.8 % above the sum of 2014.


The publication provides the five-year period variations in the agricultural and food sector development indicators, special attention focusing on the events and outcomes in 2015. Pursuing the opportunity to compare the key tendencies, data in all surveys is provided following the single methodology and structure.


As in any previous year, some provisional statistical indicators for the year 2015 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. Insignificant deviations due to rounding are possible in statistical data.

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 gratitude goes to the Heads of the Department of Statistics and the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Lithuania, the Agricultural Information and Rural Business Centre (AIRBC) and their staff members for provided statistical information and advice. Dear readers, we are kindly looking forward to your remarks and proposals.
