Lithuania improves its ranking from the 21st to 16th in the Heritage Foundation’s 2020 Index of Economic Freedom. The country has regained its position from 2016 after four years of backsliding, the index shows.

Values should come first and only then be followed by cooperation in the form of geopolitical alliances, which guarantee freedom from repression.
