Estonia - Corruption

Corruption is not a problem for investors in Estonia, which is considered the least corrupt country in Central and Eastern Europe and one of the most competitive new EU member states. Most of Estonia's public institutions have good anti-corruption and transparency practices. The necessary legislation, regulations and penalties to efficiently counteract corruption are in place, and the government has implemented anti-corruption laws effectively. Facilitation payments are prohibited under Estonian law. The same applies to gifts and hospitality in return for services, and businesses do not perceive these practices to be common in Estonia.
