Abstract: Following the coup, the new nationalist government was in need of funds for the implementation of the planned reforms. It was expecting loans from abroad and especially from Lithuanians living in the U.S. However, most emigrants disapproved of the takeover and the government was severely criticized. Pursuing to regain favour among the emigrants, the government was ready to make certain allowances (especially in the field of the economy) which were expected to raise capital by means of attracting Lithuanian emigrants. Promotion of emigrants’ tourism to Lithuania was among the possible sources of replenishment of the country’s currency reserves. On average it was estimated that a foreigner spends up to 1,000 USD in Lithuania. However, emigrants’ (especially those from the USA) tourism to Lithuania was of greater significance as Lithuanians from abroad visiting their homeland could see the progress of the country for themselves and inform others about the reforms, thus forming a more positive opinion towards the Lithuanian government; their links with the homeland enhanced Lithuanianess abroad; promotion of Lithuanian products, especially food as there were plans to expand their export to the U.S.; emigrants were encouraged to purchase land, buildings and other property
