There are many opportunities for strengthening cooperation in various areas, especially in the sphere of bilateral economic relations. The Ambassador said that the visa-free regime for Lithuanian citizens would undoubtedly contribute to the mutually beneficial business and tourism development, and would help to strengthen people-to-people links.
