Aistė Almanaitė, Director of the Communications Department
We are responsible for building the understanding of the general public, financial market participants, the academic community and Lithuanian and foreign media of the role and functions of Lithuania's central bank – the Bank of Lithuania. One of our key communication outlets is the Bank of Lithuania website (www.lb.lt), which provides relevant up-to-date information in both Lithuanian and English. We also post the latest news on our social media platforms, communicate it via media outlets or by sending press releases to journalists as well as organise press conferences. Events held at the Bank of Lithuania are often broadcast online. Through seminars and presentations organised by our department residents learn how to manage personal finances. We reply to queries received from the general public by email or phone.
Located in the heart of Vilnius, the Money Museum introduces visitors to the history of Lithuanian and world money as well as the single European currency – the euro. We select unique locations across the country to hold presentations of new collector and commemorative coins issued by the Bank of Lithuania. Every few years we organise open-day events at the Bank of Lithuania premises.
Numerous Bank of Lithuania periodicals for those interested in finances are available on our website in electronic format. Since the Bank of Lithuania is part of the European System of Central Banks, we maintain close contact with experts from the European Central Bank (ECB) in preparing ECB publications in Lithuanian.
We have also published copious amounts of books on monetary and banking history, prominent figures in the field of finances, as well as organised exhibitions and issued complementary publications on money in paintings, photographs, artwork and caricatures.
By presenting unbiased and detailed information on banks in accordance with the Communication Policy of the Bank of Lithuania (237.1 KB ), we ensure transparency of Bank of Lithuania activities, which is one of our institution’s core values.
