1We have used the World Economic Forum analysis where Estonia came to be on the 29th place in 2017, as the scoreboard for international competitiveness.
Following Estonia's accession to the EU, EAS became one of the agencies implementing EU structural funds in Estonia. During the 2007-2013 EU financing period, EUR 784 million (EEK 12 billion) of the more than EUR 3.4 billion (EEK 53 billion) of structural aid to Estonia has been implemented by Enterprise Estonia. In EU's new, 2014-2020 funding period, the budget for Structural Funds is 3.5 billion euros, of which 588.1 million is to be implemented by Enterprise Estonia.
Estonia will be among top twenty countries in the world competitiveness scoreboard by 20201.
EAS is led by a 3-member Management Board and a Supervisory Board, consisting of the entrepreneurs and officials.
Additionally, advisory boards consisting of the best experts in each of the areas of Enterprise Estonia’s responsibilities give the organization advice and guidance in return for up to date information on future plans and opportunities.
