European Travel Commission

Lithuania became a member of the European Travel Commission (hereinafter referred to as the “ETC”) in 2002.

The ETC has its headquarters in Brussels and has 32 members. The key objective of the organisation is to market European countries worldwide. One of the main ETC marketing projects is the website, financed by the European Commission from funds contributed by its Member States. Each year, Lithuania participates in conferences and trainings organised by the ETC in implementing the common project ‘Visit Europe’, which allows presenting the country in the general European context, improving the country’s image and attracting as many tourists as possible.

The Ministry of Economy participates in the ETC activities.

Prof. Renaldas Čiužas, Head of the Tourism Policy Division of the Ministry of Economy, has been elected a Vice-President for the Sustainability of the European Travel Commission.
