Country Report
The article presents a risk summary for Estonia. In politics, the proposed amendments to Estonia's tax law brought up by the government to bring the tax system in line with European Union (EU) directives have raised concern over the future of the country's much admired corporate income tax regime. On the economic side, Estonia's trade deficit continues to decline as the economy slows down. In business, Prime Minister Andrus Ansip says the state will spend about 0.7% of gross domestic product (GDP) for research and development.
