MA European Studies alum Virginijus Sinkevičius nominated as European Commissioner

Sinkevičius' nomination has already been approved by the government and President Gitanas Nauseda, and is yet to be endorsed by the European Parliament.

The 28-year-old has risen from completing a traineeship at the Lithuanian mission in the US, to becoming the Economy and Innovation Minister, and scoring the EU Commission endorsement in just six years.

LRT English has compiled Sinkevičius's key accomplishments in his career that began 10 years ago when he walked out of the door of Salomėja Neris High School in Vilnius.
