Realising the Strategy Lithuania 2030, the Government passed The National Advance Programme for the years 2014-2020 in 2012. The Programme has culture as a horizontal priority, which covers cultural identity, creativity, and competitive cultural services for society. The implementation of the Inter-institutional Action Plan of the Horizontal Priority Culture, approved by the Lithuanian Government in 2014, is coordinated by the Ministry of Culture. Participating institutions are the Lithuanian Ministries of Education, Science and Sport, Social Security and Labour, Environment, Economy and Innovation, Transport and Communications, Interior, Agriculture, Energy and the Lithuanian Department of Statistics.
In Lithuania, there are no special inter-governmental bodies set up for facilitation of cooperation. Inter-ministerial and inter-institutional cooperation mainly functions through ad-hoc governmental commissions, committees, working groups and the like, that are established for special issues. In 2017-2018, the Ministry of Culture initiated about 20 inter-institutional working groups that were responsible for various cultural policy issues: creation of the education measures based on arts and culture; elaboration of the improvement of the wage system of cultural workers; preparation of documents for the inscription of Kaunas Modernism Architecture in the UNESCO World Heritage List; preparation of guidelines for school library development etc. In 2018, about 10 temporary inter-institutional commissions worked at the Ministry of Culture.
The Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport work in cooperation on arts education and common programmes such as Culture Pass and Reading Promotion Programme.
