WTO Director-General Roberto Azevêdo said: "I welcome Lithuania's generosity. This support is vital for our work to help developing and least-developed countries increase their knowledge and understanding of trade issues to help them connect to global markets."

Lithuania’s Vice-minister H.E. Mr Albinas Zananavičius said: “Lithuania is a strong believer in open, fair and inclusive international trade, which it sees as an important instrument for supporting economic growth and development, building social welfare and enabling companies of every size to find their place within the global trade network. We recognize the value of technical assistance and capacity building in countries acceding to the WTO as well as in those who are already WTO members. As a small and open economy, Lithuania attaches great importance to strengthening and deepening the understanding of multilateral trade rules, which in turn allows all WTO members to benefit from a more stable and predictable trade environment.”

Overall, Lithuania has donated approximately CHF 300,000 to WTO trust funds over the last 10 years.
