In order to achieve the indicated task, authors concentrate themselves on two major questions. Firstly, quantitative relationships between investments into major areas of economic activities and Lithuanian economic growth are being estimated. Secondly, comparative analysis of Lithuanian pattern of investment and randomly taken developed European country is being performed. Authors seek to trace how the latter invested during its process of development. Concrete period of observation is being chosen taking into account the current level of Lithuanian economic development.
