#TTIP Most Discussed Topic in Lithuania

The proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is one of the most popular topics of conversation on social media in Lithuania, according to a recent study I conducted to inform the digital communications strategy of the US Embassy to Vilnius for Ambassador Deborah A. McCarthy.

Our findings also suggest that recent data from Pew Research — which showed 71 percent of Lithuanians support a free trade agreement between the EU and the U.S. — has spilled over into a vibrant discussion on social media about the potential economic benefits of TTIP to Lithuanians.
