The Association of Lithuanian Trade Enterprises (Lietuvos prekybos įmonių asociacija - LPIA) has just joined EuroCommerce as a new member.
EuroCommerce Director-General Christian Verschueren said:
“We are delighted to welcome LPIA as a member: we have missed Lithuania’s voice in our discussions and decision-making for some years. LPIA’s membership now means a historic milestone for the European retail and wholesale federation. This is the first time in its history that EuroCommerce embraces national associations from all 28 Member States of the European Union.”
LPIA was established in 1997 to represent retailers in Lithuania, including in social dialogue. It has 15 active members from food and non-food retailers, including the four largest Lithuanian food retailers as well as networks of small food retailers, drugstores, clothing shops, electronics retailers, retail service providers and convenience stores.
