image: A Year of Many Unknowns A Year of Many Unknowns

- Estonia does not suffer from any serious short-term imbalances. Problems are either long-term or external, and they are not so much Brexit or Trump-related, said Morten Hansen as he commenced SCCE’s 1 March Business Seminar headlined ‘2017 - A Year of Many Unknowns’, arranged in cooperation with SCCE’s member SSE Riga - the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga.

- As for Brexit and Trump, both represent Estonian export markets not being too big. Sweden and Finland remain Estonia’s by far biggest export destinations with both countries accounting for a bit more than one third of Estonia’s total exports, continued Morten Hansen.

- The real main risks and problems are found in the Eurozone. Some have already happened, and unfortunately continue to happen, while at least one obvious risk represents a what-if scenario, said Morten Hansen.


Morten Hansen is Head of the Economics Department at SSE Riga and also a member of the Fiscal Discipline Council of Latvia. This year’s seminar marked the eight consecutive year that Morten Hansen and SSE Riga came to Tallinn for a presentation and a Q&A session on the international economy from an Estonian and Baltic perspective.

In addition to Morten’s presentation, Nellija Titova, SSE Riga Executive MBA Programme Director, gave us an insight into SSE Riga's Executive MBA programme.

A report from the Business Seminar will be published in the spring issue of focus – the magazine of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Estonia.


On behalf of the SCCE, I would like to thank Morten Hansen, Nellija Titova and their team from SSE Riga for a very interesting Business Seminar. My thanks also go to Swissôtel for a very nice set up of our seminar.
