Bank of Lithuania – central bank of the Republic of Lithuania

The Bank of Lithuania is the central bank of the Republic of Lithuania. The mission of the Bank of Lithuania is to create benefits for society through a sound financial system and sustainable economic development. This is pursued in various ways.

Together with the central banks of the other euro area countries, the Bank of Lithuania participates in Eurosystem monetary policy decisions that are important for the whole of Europe. These decisions determine the level of interest rates across the euro area and price developments. In order to make informed decisions, the national economy is closely monitored, forecasts are published, economic surveys are carried out, and the stability of the Lithuanian financial system and potential risks are assessed.

Most people use commercial banks and credit unions, insurance companies, payment, electronic money and other financial institutions. The specialists of Bank of Lithuania apply various measures to ensure that their activities are reliable, transparent and compliant with the law.

In addition, the Bank of Lithuania puts cash into circulation in the form of euro bills and coins, which we all hold in our hands almost every day and pay for goods and services. The Bank of Lithuania is also responsible for Lithuania's gold reserves. It is also entrusted with the direct management of Lithuania's other financial assets.
