Lithuanian economic review
Economic reviews prepared by the Bank of Lithuania present a comprehensive analysis of Lithuania's external environment, real and external sectors, fiscal policy, development of credit and financial markets, price changes and the outlook for Lithuania's economy and price developments. The reviews are published since November 2011.
The Bank of Lithuania macroeconomic projections are a result of both macroeconometric modelling and expert judgement. The projections are first constructed using the structural macroeconometric model that is created, maintained and updated by the Economics Department. The model-based projections are then updated taking into account expert judgement with respect to structural changes and the latest available information about the forthcoming economic shocks.
