Insufficient business innovation activity in Lithuania shows a need to explore possible factors determining this state of play. It is assumed that lack of concrete and specifically targeted government actions or their efficiency is extremely important here. Thus, in order to analyse business innovation promotion in Lithuania, theoretical, strategic and statistical data are taken into consideration. This paper suggests the generalised theoretical system of business innovation determinants, analyses the statistics describing business innovation activity in Lithuania, and provides an assessment of the current Action Plan of Lithuanian Innovation Strategy for 2010–2020 from a business innovation promotion perspective.
