On Friday, Linas Linkevičius, Minister of Foreign Affairs, met the Presidency sponsors and awarded them with a Presidency token and a tie for gentlemen and a scarf for ladies.

“I appreciate the fact that you, representatives of Lithuanian business, company managers and employees understand the presidency not only as an opportunity to present your activities. Support for the presidency, i.e. to your country, is also an example of citizenship. This is to express our symbolic gratitude to you, as the first to be presented traditional gifts under the protocol, namely a tie and a scarf,” said Mr Linkevičius upon presenting gifts to company managers, partners of the Lithuanian Presidency of the EU Council.

The Minister reminded that the companies, in becoming Presidency partners, would also receive benefits, as the names and logos of the companies have been posted on the Presidency website, the companies will be visible at events, and the companies’ products will be demonstrated to Presidency guests.

“Not only will this enhance your visibility, but it will also contribute to the proclamation of Lithuania as guests recognise Lithuania through your excellent products and services,” he added.

Over 20 companies responded to the call to become Presidency partners that was published in January 2012. The Minister of Foreign Affairs has signed support agreements with 13 companies, and two agreements were signed at the meeting of the Minister and representatives of sponsors. Negotiations continue with a further three companies.

Support for the presidency granted by partners of the Lithuanian Presidency of the EU Council exceeds LTL 2 million in value.
