Over two months, LTL 2.8 billion was exchanged into euro in Lithuania
From 1 January of this year until 1 March, commercial banks, Lithuania Post, the Bank of Lithuania and some credit unions exchanged, free of charge, litas cash in the value of 2.8 billion (EUR 0.81 billion) and performed more than 1.2 million exchange operations. When exchange will end at the post offices and credit unions, litas will be exchanged into euro at commercial banks and the Bank of Lithuania.
Experts suggest the euro has a lesser impact on the Lithuanian price level compared to the neighbouring countries
