Klaipeda city’s economic development strategy Klaipeda 2030 has been nominated in the City FDI Promotion Strategy of the Year category at this year’s Emerging Europe Awards.

“When we introduced Klaipeda 2030 strategy, we received a lot of positive feedback from business, other cities and central government – as we are the first city to develop this kind of strategy in Lithuania. The fact that the initiative has been recognized abroad also means that we are on the right track,” – says the mayor of Klaipeda Vytautas Grubliauskas.
