State budget strategy

In the state budget strategy for the years from 2018-2021, the government of Estonia has set four priorities: promoting economic growth, increasing the population of Estonia, safeguarding and reinforceing the national security as well as increasing social welfare and cohesion. The strategy spells out specific activities and funding in order to achieve the government’s aims.

According to the forecast, the economic growth will average 2.8 per cent a year and the annual growth of tax receipts will average 6.5 per cent from 2017-2021. Tax changes will make the system more growth-friendly, preferring to tax consumption rather than earning. Tax burden will be stable and remain below 36 per cent of GDP.

Administrative-Territorial Reform

The government made the last of the decisions regarding the administrative-territorial reform in early July. As a result of the mergers initiated by volunteers and the government, out of 213 governments in Estonia 79 local governments i.e. 15 towns and 64 municipalities will remain.
