Goal and strategy

The Lithuanian Plan’s main goal is to ensure the sustainable development of the agriculture and food sector in the country. Among others, this will be achieved by increasing the added value and the competitiveness of the sector, supporting farm viability, especially of small- and medium-sized farms, promoting sustainable production methods, while also ensuring adaptation to climate change and nature conservation. Enhancing innovation and increasing the attractiveness of rural areas are also emphasised.
