SEB raises Lithuania's economic-growth outlook for 2012

Danuta Pavilenene, BC, Vilnius, 21.06.2012.Print version
SEB Bank AB, Lithuania's largest bank by assets, raised its economic-growth outlook for the country for a second time, citing better-than-expected first- quarter results and resilience to Europe's debt crisis.

The economy will probably expand 3.5% this year, compared with a May estimate of 3%, the bank said in an e-mailed report today. Growth may slow to 3% in 2013, it said.

 

Lithuania's economy expanded 3.9% from a year earlier in the first quarter, the European Union's second- fastest pace after neighboring Latvia, writes LETA/ELTA.

 

The Baltic nation's output advanced as domestic demand strengthened and the country's main export markets of Russia, Germany, Latvia and Estonia, posted quicker economic growth than economists predicted.
