Estonia Ranked 8th in the World for Economic Freedom

Up three place from last year in the 2015 Index of Economic Freedom, Estonia now ranks 8th in the world, 1st in the EU and second in Europe behind Switzerland.   The index, compiled by the Heritage Foundation, attributes Estonia's success to minimal state interference in the economy, a prudent fiscal policy, a commitment to open markets and overall regulatory efficiency.

The countries for Estonia to surpass next year are Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Switzerland, Canada and Chile.
