Investment in Baltics Opportunities in fastest growing EU markets

Latvia & Estonia About countries Latvia and Estonia are countries located at the heart of the Baltic Sea Region - Europe’s fastest-growing market of more than 90 million people. It is a region described by political and economic stability, accessibility, ease and low cost of doing business and investor equality. Since joining the European Union and NATO, both countries have experienced phenomenal economic growth. Today, Estonia’s government debt is among the lowest in Europe and the economy has shown considerable endurance to the global economic crisis. After being severely affected by the global financial crisis, Latvia implemented extensive austerity measures as a result the economics as well as the confidence of foreign investors and FDI inflows are on the rise again. Countries have a unique geographical and cultural position, providing a strategic location for business operations targeting developed economies of the EU and emerging markets of eastern neighbors and are easy accessible, both from a logistical and social point of view - Riga(Latvia) and Tallinn (Estonia) are within 3-4 hours flight from major European capitals.
