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.

Abstract
The Specialisation, Regional Clusters and Competitiveness: Global Challenges Regional Strategies project undertaken in collaboration with the OECD and the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (NUTEK) is designed to increase understanding on how the competitive advantages of regions in different sectors and industries contribute to the overall regional economic performance, whether public policy should be trying to support or develop such specialisations and, if so, how. The specific aim of the project is to compare how regions sharing diverse institutional, policy and regulatory structures, technologies, infrastructures and market orientations are reacting to the challenges of apparently homogenizing globalisation and changes in production systems, and the steps they are taking to preserve or transform their current regional economic "portfolios".
