ESTONIAN TRADE WITH THE EASTERN PARTNERSHIP COUNTRIES

02. марта 2020

Estonian foreign trade with the six Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries in general moved up and down in a rather similar way as EU–EaP trade during the past 10 years. Except Belarus, Estonian trade with the other partner countries is still close to the 2008 level.

Trade volume with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Moldova is rather modest, geographical distance and logistical issues limit trade flows. With all four countries Estonian trade balance in 2018 was positive.

Trade relations with Belarus and especially Ukraine are wide and there are several long-term flows of goods. Ukraine is currently Estonian 17th export destination country, other EaP countries are on lower positions.

It is clear that trade progress is influenced by the economic development of the EaP countries
