HRSTRATEGIES HOSTS LITHUANIAN PRIME MINISTER

 DETROIT, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The prime minister and U.S. ambassador from Lithuania -- the first Baltic state to declare independence from the Soviet Union -- will join other government officials on a three-day visit to the Detroit area starting Friday.
 The Lithuanian delegation is being hosted Friday by HRStrategies, Inc., an international human resources consulting firm. HRStrategies, headquartered in Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., maintains its Central European office in Vilnius, Lithuania. The firm began assisting Lithuania in its privatization efforts last year.
 "We are delighted to be hosting a reception for the prime minister, the ambassador and the entire Lithuanian delegation," said David Jones, president and CEO of HRStrategies. "It is an honor that the delegation has chosen to visit with us prior to beginning an official state visit to Washington, D.C. next week."
 Prime Minister Adolfas Slezevicius, Ambassador Stasys Lozoraitis, their wives and leaders of three of Lithuania's political parties will take a private tour of a General Motors assembly facility and will meet with UAW leaders at Solidarity House prior to the HRStrategies reception.
 The delegation will meet with members of Michigan's Commerce Department and Export Council at the private reception. Afterward, the delegation will attend a weekend conference sponsored by the Lithuanian American Community before proceeding to Washington for an official state visit.
 Lithuania, which led the independence movement, is about half the size of the state of Michigan and has a population of 3.7 million people. In addition, Lithuania is one of the leaders in Central Europe in vigorously pursuing privatization and a free-market economy.
 HRStrategies also has offices located in New York, Los Angeles, and Houston. HRStrategies assists major corporations -- including Bristol Myers Squibb, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Corporation, Motorola, Exxon, Philip Morris, Pepsi-Cola, Anheuser-Busch and others -- in developing skills assessment, employee selection, and programs to ensure legal compliance in human resources practices.
