Vilnius Reform Urged

VILNIUS () -- Lithuania, viewed by many as slow to reform its economy along market lines, should privatize the key telecommunications and energy sectors to get more investment, securities giant Nomura said.

"Transport, telecoms and energy should be privatized," Yoshihisa Tabuchi, Nomura director-counselor and former chief executive of the group, told a news conference Thursday.

He and a delegation from the company earlier met Lithuanian Prime Minister Mindaugas Stankevicius and several cabinet members.
