Estonia is ranked 15th among the 34 OECD member countries in decreasing order with a tax wedge for an average single worker at 40.0% in 2014, compared with the OECD average of 36.0%.
This publication examines public governance arrangements in Finland and Estonia in two key areas: whole-of-government strategy steering and digital governance. This integrated review reflects the fact that the two countries face common challenges in setting and co-ordinating the implementation of whole-of-government strategies.
This publication contains statistics on fisheries in OECD member countries (with the exception of Austria, Israel and Slovenia) and some non-member economies (Argentina, Colombia, Latvia, Chinese Taipei, Thailand) from 2006 to 2013. Data provided concern fishing fleet capacity, employment in fisheries, fish landings, aquaculture production, recreational fisheries, government financial transfers, and imports and exports of fish.
This report is the first joint OECD Public Governance Review between two countries. The Report discusses challenges in whole-of-government strategy steering and the opportunities of digital government.

This country note from Going for Growth 2015 for Estonia identifies and assesses progress made on key reforms to boost long-term growth, improve competitiveness and productivity and create jobs.
Estonia was among the countries hardest hit by the crisis, but it is bouncing back strongly. Nonetheless, Estonia is still a ‘catch-up country’, with some distance to travel before it closes the income gap with top-performing OECD countries.
The income gap with respect to top performing countries is diminishing slowly. Declining labour supply and skills shortages pose risks for competitiveness. Reforms are needed to raise productivity and make more of Estonia’s human capital base.
The underlying strengths of the Estonian economy have helped it bounce back from the crisis, but some challenges remain to finding a steeper, more inclusive and more sustainable growth path, according to the latest OECD Economic Survey of Estonia.
