Country Report
The article presents information on the economic, political and business risks assessed in Estonia for 2005. Estonia's new government is an uneasy union of three political parties, the Reform Party, the People's Union, and the Centre Party, that cover the centre-right to the centre-left of the political spectrum. Estonia's external current account deficit declined slightly in 2004 to 12.6% of gross domestic product, from 13.2% in 2003. The income deficit continued to grow in line with higher returns on equity investments by foreigners.
