Foreign trade

The Estonian economy is an open one – in addition to active trading, lots of foreign entrepreneurs are operating here; Estonian enterprises are among the most active foreign investors in transitional economies.

Being a small state, Estonia has to import quite a lot of goods, which means that something has to be exported as well. That is why much emphasis is laid on the increase of export. Estonia's multifaceted economy provides a wide range of both goods and services for export. The structure of Estonia's economy is in fact largely influenced by export.

The import into Estonia exceeds export. This is possible because foreign investors have invested in Estonia. Up to now they have been earning a decent profit and therefore the inflow of money into Estonia has continued.
