The Republic of Estonia is a northern European country, located on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea and on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland. Estonia is bordered by Latvia to the south and Russia to the east. This country covers 45,339 sq.kms, it has a little over 1.315 million inhabitants and a GDP of US$25.6 billion (source: Eurostat – Tresor – BIT, 2018).

The Estonian economy is characterized by its industry and highly competitive service sector.

Estonia has been particularly successful in the IT and Internet sector, the cradle of companies such as Skype, and has been quick to develop online access to government services.

Its main trading partners are Finland, Sweden, Germany, Latvia, Russia, Lithuania and the United States.

France is the 12th biggest investor in Estonia. Forty or so French companies are based in Estonia, particularly in the infrastructure and transport sector, logistics, electronics, industry and hotels.

In order to meet the needs of its customers on the Estonian market, Simon Associés has developed privileged relations with economic and legal partners locally.
