The news portal called BalticAsia is a pilot project born in September 2013 out of an idea of uniting young and enthusiastic experts on East Asia who would be able to share their knowledge on Asia with their Lithuanian audience as well introduce readers from Asia with Lithuania and the common historic, cultural, political and economic ties that bind us.
In 2014 the team of BalticAsia notice not only the ever increasing numbers of readers and visitors to the website, but also a strong interest in using the translation, consultation and event management services of our young professionals. Cooperation with the three main Lithuania-based centers of Asia at universities and their experts also intensifies. This is the reason for BalticAsia expanding its profile and being formally established as VŠĮ ‘Azijos informacijos ir paslaugų agentūra’’ (NGO ‘Asian Information and Services Agency’).
Since 2015 BalticAsia members have been continuing to work on their ongoing projects, in collaboration with univesities, ministries, embassies and other governmental institutions, NGOs, local companies, individuals, etc.
– Foster the friendly relations and cooperation not only between Asian and Lithuania, but also between other Baltic countries.

To create a unified community of Baltic and Asian experts which would encourage their self-actualization, the use of their competences, cooperation, exchanging relevant information and data on the virtual platform.
