Our relationship with Lithuania
New Zealand has a friendly relationship with Lithuania. There is a small Lithuanian community centred in Auckland.
As small states, our two countries share similar interests, and work well together at the multilateral level. We have a common approach across a range of international issues, and we cooperate closely in the United Nations Security Council where both New Zealand and Lithuania are non-permanent members in 2015. New Zealand also values Lithuania’s role as a member of the European Union and NATO.
Building on these political ties, New Zealand and Lithuania have recently established a Working Holiday Scheme, which allows 100 young people annually to holiday, work and study in each other’s countries for up to a year. This agreement strengthens the people-to-people ties between our two countries.
