Minister of Foreign Affairs, Linas Linkevičius, on 22 October, opened the exhibition 'Smart Country Convention' (SCC). Lithuania is a partner country of the exhibition this year, which implies that it has better opportunities to present its achievements to the German market.

'The fact that Lithuania has become a partner country of the SCC shows that our country's achievements in the area of digital solutions are recognised on an international scale. It is only by cooperating closely that we can ensure the security of our countries' digital space, adapt smart solutions to cities and the public sector, and grant more of the common good to our citizens,' Minister Linkevičius said while opening the exhibition.

The Lithuanian National Stand features solutions for smart cities, cyber security and e-government by 15 Lithuanian IT companies. Lithuanian public sector representatives and companies will also share their experiences at the conference which takes place in the framework of the exhibition.
