Lithuanian leaders about Create Lithuania

Responding the invitation to create for Lithuania means leading our state forward by means of your knowledge, creativity and leadership. It also means hearing the voice of young and talented people and giving them the opportunity to use their so much needed international experience in the public sector.

Gitanas Nausėda President of the Republic of Lithuania

This programme encourages talents to participate in the life of Lithuania, experience the necessity to create Lithuania and take the responsibility for the future of Lithuania.

Dalia Grybauskaitė President of the Republic of Lithuania (2009-2019)

It is very important for Lithuania that citizens do not stand on the sidelines, but actively participate in the governance of the country. The public sector desperately needs new thinking, new ideas, a driven approach to problem solving, and the Create Lithuania programme offers the state exactly that.

Saulius Skvernelis Prime Minister (2016-2020)

Finding young professionals returning from abroad and willing to make a difference in the public sector is difficult. This is why Create Lithuania is an injection of new people and innovative ideas that helps to revitalize neglected areas that need a fresh approach.

Virginijus Sinkevičius Eurocommissioner

“Create Lithuania programme is like a droplet that ripples through the state institutions and raises awareness about how much can be achieved, when talented creative people are employed to build the future of the state.

Mantas Katinas Director General of Invest Lithuania (2015-2021)
