Dragged down by dwindling external demand in the neighbouring countries to the east and the current decline in investments, the Estonian GDP will grow by 1.9% in 2015. Household consumption remains the strongest driver of economic activity. Over the next two years we expect a recovery in trade with countries to the west, while the decline in exports to Russia should come to a halt. Moreover, an upswing, particularly in public investments, should boost GDP growth to 2.6% and 2.8% in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
