Estonian Competitiveness Report 2021

The Estonian Competitiveness Report by experts from Eesti Pank is published once a year. The report covers Estonian competitiveness in international comparison, the factors that affect competitiveness, and changes in those factors in recent years. Competitiveness is assessed in various ways, using the results of comparative tables put together by international organisations and think tanks, and analysing the exporting capacity of Estonian companies and the factors that affect it. The long-term impact of climate changes on the Estonian economy is also described in the report, together with the risks and opportunities of greening the economy. Assessments of competitiveness use indicators covering the whole economy. As comparative data on the global economy arrive with a lag, the current report mainly uses data for the end of 2020.
