Specialists in the Latvian and Lithuanian languages and cultures, especially translators and interpreters, are in increasing demand following the independence of the Baltic countries. Economic growth in these countries and increasing cooperation with Finland has opened up new employment opportunities in export, tourism, the media, etc. A knowledge of Lithuanian and Latvian is also valuable to scholars interested in the origin of Finnish words.
