This is Lithuania’s first Consulate General on the West Coast, and it is intended not only to serve California but also the entire West Coast of the United States from San Diego to Alaska.
The new Lithuania’s diplomatic mission to the USA will enhance the delivery of consular services and help promote cooperation with the regional Lithuanian community. It will also serve to promote tourism and cultural exchanges and contribute significantly to the promotion of trade and investment opportunities.
As noted by Diplomatic Connections Magazine, Los Angeles is also home to a significant Lithuanian-American community, estimated at 100,000, and a prominent Jewish community that sees its heritage in the once vibrant Lithuanian Jewish community.
