The Lithuania Banking System

The Bank of Lithuania is the central bank of the Republic of Lithuania. Its principal objective is to maintain price stability. In seeking its principal objective, the Bank of Lithuania is independent from the Government of the Republic of Lithuania or other institutions of the state.

The first private commercial banks in Lithuania were established in January 1989, while the central bank – Bank of Lithuania – was established a year later.  The reform of Lithuania’s state-owned banking sector was started in 1992, with the introduction of a standard two-tier banking system consisting of the central bank and the commercial banks. At present, the Bank of Lithuania has the exclusive right to grant and revoke licenses to local and foreign banks and to supervise their activities. The central bank also represents Lithuania in international banking institutions. (Lithuanian Development Agency; Bank of Lithuania)
