Nordea’s chief economist in the Baltic countries Zygimantas Mauricas and economists from Estonia Tõnu Palm and Latvia Gints Belevics will present their findings and share their insights about the latest trends of Baltic and global economy.

Topics for the discussion:

  • Baltic economies are well positioned for solid and sustainable growth, however this growth path is littered with hurdles;
  • Export growth will remain subdued as a response to weak external demand (Brexit, Russia);
  • Strong private consumption growth will continue in 2017;
  • Public finances are beautiful, but is this a beauty contest in the EU?
  • Desynchronized housing market: Estonia – booming, Latvia – stagnating, Lithuania – recovering;
  • Investment growth will recover due to higher inflows of EU-funds.

“Baltic States did their homework well and are ready for the period of solid and sustainable growth, but external environment is littered with hurdles, which prevent Baltic States from utilizing their full growth potential,” says Zygimantas Mauricas, Nordea chief economist in the Baltic countries.

The webinar will take place on September 6 starting 9:00 until 10 AM (EET). You are invited to sign up for the webinar, using the registration link goo.gl/ZsqrOc.
