Lithuania plans to continue this year allowing foreign drivers, construction workers and other workers of the industrial and construction sectors to come to Lithuania under a facilitated procedure after the country's Employment Service updated its list of key professions lacking workers, writes LETA/BNS.

The list is important for foreigners coming to work in Lithuania as they can enter the country under a facilitated procedure without a permit issued by the Employment Service if their profession is on that list.

Lithuania is estimated to need bricklayers, scaffolders, plasterers, welders, butchers, seamstresses, long-haul drivers and others this year. The Employment Service says the list of made taking into account vacancies and demand, employers' wishes, and estimated demand in a specific profession as well as businesses' planned investment and creation of new jobs.

The list is produced twice a year to balance the demand and supply in the labor market.
