Abstract
This study constructs the basis of the national Action Plan for SME e-business support for 2008-2013 in the Republic of Lithuania. It has been commissioned to the Institute of Interdisciplinary Research (EIIR) by the Information Society Development Committee under the Government of the Republic of Lithuania. The aim of the Plan is to encourage and assist small and medium size enterprises (SMEs), to use Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in a way that will maximize their business performance and competitive advantage. Effective use of ICT across all sectors of the economy can act as a driver to increase competitiveness. ICT connectivity across the European Union (EU) is widespread in businesses of all sizes. SMEs, however, lag significantly behind larger firms in adopting ICT which in turn compromises and limits their economic potential and competitiveness.
