Einführung

After centuries of Danish, Swedish, German, and Russian rule, Estonia attained independence in 1918. Forcibly incorporated into the USSR in 1940 - an action never recognized by the US and many other countries - it regained its freedom in 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Since the last Russian troops left in 1994, Estonia has been free to promote economic and political ties with the West. It joined both NATO and the EU in the spring of 2004, formally joined the OECD in late 2010, and adopted the euro as its official currency on 1 January 2011.

Makroökonomische Indikatoren

Economic growth will remain solid, but slow to 3.7% in 2018 and 3.2% in 2019 as labour resources become scarcer. Private consumption is projected to strengthen, boosted by personal income tax reductions and wage growth. Investment is projected to continue to support activity. Improved euro area growth will stimulate exports despite increases in unit labour costs.

The fiscal stance is broadly neutral in 2018 and will be mildly expansionary in 2019. While this is appropriate given accommodative euro area monetary policy, fiscal space is available to foster inclusive growth and address societal issues once risks of overheating ease. Measures to support innovative activities in domestic firms and improve access to lifelong education should be prioritised.
