Financial technologies seems to become one of the most important priorities for me as Lithuanian Honorary Consul in Frankfurt. Lithuanian and Hessian Finance Ministers are the first Ministers who visited each other and their personal friendship is already creating the first results.  The financial world of Frankfurt, which employs more than 80,000 people in the financial services, has noticed Lithuania’s leadership in fintech area. Not only Finance Minister of Hessen Dr. Thomas Schäfer, but also various financial leaders from Frankfurt, companies active in this field – BVI, Rconnext, Accelerator Frankfurt, Euro Finance Week, International Bankers Forum MALEKI CORPORATE GROUP GMBH Creator Nader Maleki, Head of TechQuartier Frankfurt, House of Finance at Goethe University – has paid great attention and respect to the visit of Lithuanian Finance Minister Vilius Šapoka.  We are pleased that we have succeeded in turning the longterm efforts of the Lithuanian-German forum into reality!
