The Economist Intel Unit was wrong! (Update)
As it was mentioned before the Economist Inelegance Unit is using old data for its reports. In the report published on the 26th of July the EIU experts expected that real GDP growth In Lithuania to slow from an estimated 7.3 percent in 2006 to 6.5 percent in 2007 and to 6.4 percent in 2008, as domestic demand growth moderates. However, very next day Lithuania’s statistical department published data stating that the Lithuania’s GDP in first half of the 2007 grew by 8,1 %. As the Lithuanian PM noted ‘Somehow Lithuanian statistics does not get into the foreign media’.
