"Estonia has good opportunities to fulfill the Maastricht criteria in spring [2010], which would allow to adopt the euro in 2011", said the Board of Eesti Pank - Estonia's Central Bank - in their December 2009 ‘Report on the Adoption of the Euro'. They were indeed right and as we all know Estonia got the final and formal go ahead for joining the eurozone January 1st, 2011, as ECOFIN - EU's Economic and Financial Affairs Council met July 13th.

- The introduction of the euro will increase the stability in the investment and economical markets influencing Estonia, said Jaan Männik, Chairman of Eesti Pank, in an interview with SCCE's magazine focus nr 1/2010.

- Our coming big objectives following the euro introduction are to ensure the quality of education, reduce dependence on energy and increase public sector efficiency, said Prime Minister and Reform Party Chairman Andrus Ansip at the Party's summer convention this year.

At a SCCE Business Lunch, Thursday September 16th, Håkan Berg, Head of Swedbank's Baltic Banking and Alice Salumets, Attorney at Law and Partner at Alvin, Rödl & Partner Law Office, will highlight Estonia and the euro introduction from two different, but related angles:
