Exports to the United Kingdom make up 2.5 percent of all Lithuanian exports, UK contribution to EU funds and investment received by Lithuania comes to 1.5 percent, over 5 percent of the Lithuanian population lives in the United Kingdom and remittances from this diaspora make up 1.2 percent of Lithuania's GDP, according to the analysis.
The Latvian figures were marginally lower, followed by Hungary and Poland. Russia scored zero across all four parameters, while 0.1 percent of Turkey's GDP came from exports to the United Kingdom.
The results of the UK referendum on EU membership have driven ratings agencies to forecast increased economic turbulence in Europe. On Friday, S&P downgraded the European Union's credit rating down from AA+ to AA with a stable outlook due to uncertainty in the wake of last week's Brexit vote in the United Kingdom's EU membership referendum. In late June, the agency also cut the United Kingdom's credit rating from AAA to AA, while Fitch downgraded the country's bonds to AA from AA+.
Both agencies gave the United Kingdom a negative outlook due to concerns Brexit might affect its economy, public finances and political stability.
