Dragged down by dwindling external demand in the Eastern neighbourhood and an ongoing decline in investments, the Estonian GDP will grow by 2.2% in 2015. Household consumption remains the strongest driver of economic activity. For the coming two years we expect a recovery of trade toward Western destinations, while the decline in exports to Russia should come to a halt. Moreover, an upswing particularly of public investments should accelerate GDP growth to 2.6% and 3.2%, respectively, in 2016 and 2017.
