According to the latest estimates by Statistics Estonia, the gross domestic product (GDP) of Estonia increased 1.9 percent in the 2nd quarter of 2015 compared to the same quarter of the previous year.

Greatest growth contributors were real estate business, manufacturing, forestry and fishing industries.

External trade suffered and had a negative impact on the Estonian economy, as the export of food and beverages decreased substantially.
