Debt collection Estonia

About Estonia

Estonia is a developed country with an advanced, high-income economy.  Estonia has the most developed economy among ex-Soviet countries.

The economy is open and deeply integrated with the economies of neighbor Sweden and Finland, as well as retains legacy economic ties with Russia. Finland, Russia, Sweden and Germany are four main trade partners. Trade balance though is negative.

Traditionally, Estonia has been seen as an area of rivalry between western and eastern Europe on many levels. Today, Estonian society encourages liberty and liberalism, with popular commitment to the ideals of the limited government, discouraging centralized power and corruption. Western values, culture and business practices are widespread.

The official language of Estonia is Estonian, from Finno-Ugric languages group. Although a good share of Estonians speak and/or understand Russian, the most popular foreign language is English.

No specific challenges of debt collection in Latvia are observed.
