BCC Regional Business Trip to Utena

On October 11th, the British Chamber of Commerce organized its first ever Regional Trip to Utena for BCC members with kind support by Utena District Municipality and BCC Member BIKUVA,UAB.

The aim of this visit was to introduce BCC Members to Utena, Lithuanian industrial city, known for its clothing, food and beverage factories such as "Utenos trikotažas", "Utenos mėsa", Švyturys-Utenos alus and other. There are more than 650 companies registered in the Utena District. In recent years, with its large areas of the parks Utena District started focusing also on recreation and tourism. A number of joint Danish – Lithuanian and Norwegian – Lithuanian capital ventures are successfully operating in the Region. Utena District Municipality is recognized as one of the most active Municipalities in Lithuania and a reliable and supportive partner for private sector.

During the trip, BCC members met with Utena District Vice-Mayor Mr Vidmantas Valinčius, who gave a brief overview about business conditions and existing investment opportunities in this district. BCC members also visited an impressive family company "Umaras", local manufacturer of polyethylene films since 1993, represented by Vaidas Damidavicius, company commercial director. Later, the BCC members were invited to "Švyturys-Utenos alus" brewery, where all in attendance were taken on excursion and to tasting of 5 different types of beer. The trip ended up with an excellent networking lunch in "Alaušo slėnis" recreation centre outside Utena, where a number of representatives from local business community were presented.

The British Chamber of Commerce thanks enormously to Utena District Municipality and BCC member Bikuva for their initiative and great support in organising the first BCC Regional trip to Utena.
