Estonia -Joint statement on economic policy -March 05, 2015

Fewer workers are entering the labour market than leave, the number of taxpayers is shrinking, the proportion of dependents and the costs to society continues to increase.

In a joint position the social partners listed their wishes to the next government. Fewer workers are entering the labour market than leave, the number of taxpayers is shrinking, the proportion of dependents and the costs to society continues to increase. The only possible way to provide for a more expensive society with a smaller number of working hands is to do more work and more complex work with fewer workers. Thus, the society's biggest short-term aim has to be a decisive leap in the value chain, and a fast increase of competitiveness. The partners state that this is feasible if educational, economic, environmental and social policies are dedicated to it in a coordinated way.
