Business Trip to Panevezys

On the  4th December, 2012 NLCC was proud to be invited to Panevežys city companies’  tour.  Our members were, first welcomed at Panevežys municipality. There the presentation over city and its future prospect was given. During the productive day, four local companies were visited. Hence, three were of Norwegian capital and one of Lithuanian.  

 

A presentation given by the department of economy of Panevežys introduced the overall view of the city‘s economic situation and future vision.  Having a favourable georgraphical location and attractive infrastructure the 5th largest city in Lithuania offers a good platform for foreign investment.  Good communication between the city government and local businesses creates conditions for furhter economic development.  A huge emphasis is made on developing the English language proficiency in local firms, as well as looking for ways of attracting more skilled labour into the city. A good example, - Panevežys campus of Kaunas Univeristy of Technology. Full presentation can be found here.

The rest of the day was followed by visits to local textile, furniture, laundry and glass firms. The leaders of all the visited compnies were happy to intruduce their businesses and show the production side of them.  From simple ideas and implementation procedures to impresive business models and success stories, the disucussions gave a positive and productive taste of the day.
