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.
