How is the relationship changing between business, society and government?

The Lithuanian government has endorsed an unprecedented economic stimulus package, totalling 5 billion Euros, to help mitigate the negative impact of the Coronavirus crisis on workers and businesses.

The Government has allocated 23 million Euros to fully compensate for interest payable by small and medium-sized businesses in cases where the repayment of loans or financial lease was postponed from 16 March 2020 because of the pandemic.

Today, we see the same solidarity as we saw in 1989, when 2 million people formed a human chain from Vilnius to Tallinn.

Some examples of how Lithuanians are coming together in the fight against Covid-19:

Three telco companies joined forces to launch a volunteer coordination hub in just 24 hours to help citizens reach out to the elderly and other vulnerable members of society;

Vilnius municipality announced “night-care” centres, so medical workers working night shifts have a place to leave their children;

Children continue to study remotely while schools are closed with the ability to borrow laptops;

Restaurant chains are delivering free food to doctors and volunteers;

Scouts are manning an “outdoor waiting room” next to the country’s main Infectious Diseases Hospital; and

Local citizens are creating interactive maps to show which parts of the city have the highest concentrations of at-risk citizens.
