Household consumption remains the strongest driver of economic activity in Estonia, the major push factor being the rapid growth in both minimum and overall real wages. For the coming two years, we expect trade destined for Western countries to recover, while the decline in exports to Russia should
come to a halt. Moreover, an upswing in public investments should also lead to GDP growth picking up speed slightly: to 2.2% and 2.4% in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
