Political magazine Politico has announced the list of the most influential personalities in European politics, "The 28 People from 28 Countries who are Shaping, Shaking and Stirring Europe". Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Antanas Guoga has become the first Lithuanian to be included in the list.

The list consists of EU commissioners, inventors, members of royal families, artists and politicians.

Guoga said that being included in one list with prominent European politicians was a great honour and inspired him to keep moving forward. The MEP added that the recognition would allow him to establish new valuable contacts. According to Guoga, he must now prove that he is worthy of the appreciation and has to continue working actively in the European sphere.

Guoga believes he was shown appreciation not only for his activities in the European Parliament, but also for his work in Lithuania, promoting the role of private initiative in spheres like philanthropy, entrepreneurship and the digital space.
