Ingrida Šimonytė, Deputy Chairwoman of the Board of the Bank of Lithuania

Who else could tell us – owners and employees, investors and creditors, state and citizens – how things are, if not accounting specialists? And who could confirm that what is said by accounting specialists is true, if not auditors? Both of these professions are vertebra of the market economy, they provide the most significant resource – information, required for decision-making.
