“We can see a fragmentation taking place in the world as some countries want to preserve global trends, trade and the investment climate, while others want to close (their markets) through customs duties,” she told the public broadcaster LRT.

According to the president, the trends toward growing protectionism “are vivid and quite threatening,” which “usually leads to isolation, self-isolation and economic downturn”.

In Davos, Grybauskaitė will take part in the forum’s key discussion on “Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World” and in a session on “Central and Eastern Europe: A New Agenda for the Continent”.
