map Estonia
As the economic effects of the war in Ukraine gradually reveal themselves, the Estonian economy is heading for a difficult phase: inflation is extremely high; the foreign trade outlook is getting grimmer; and private consumption is being undermined by rocketing prices and shrinking savings. Yet, we expect the economic decline to be more of a dip, as energy prices are reined in, while purchasing power will be backed by state support and steady wage growth.
