Our second meeting was in Lithuania. The Paneve.˛ys Business Consultancy Centre (PBCC) welcomed all partners in their office. As first thing, each partner presented its project activities since the last meeting. It has been a pleasure to meet all partners again!
Afterwards we attended a meeting with the governor of Paneve.˛ys County.
The governor explained the situation of women in employment and in politics. A debate followed focusing on the situation of the female in each country.
Later we were transferred to a local farmstead run by a woman entrepreneur, as an example of agrotourism in Lithuania.
The business woman started the farmstead in 1997. She was one of the first to start an agrotourism business in Lithuania.
In 10 years her business has gone from three rooms to 50 rooms in three buildings. She also provides conference and wedding services. Furthermore she was one of the founders of the rural tourism association of Lithuania.
And in the evening.......we were invited to taste typical local products in the farmstead restaurant. I sveikata!!
