Estonia experiencing 'most secure period'

Estonia's prime minister has said that the country is probably experiencing its most secure period as it forges closer links with other nations.

According to the Baltic Business News, Andrus Ansip made his comments as he opened the spring session of the Senior Courses in National Defence.

"We are members of both NATO and the European Union and our economy is becoming increasing integrated with the rest of the world," he remarked.

He also said that Estonia's entry into the eurozone, which was supported by the European Commission last week, would further boost security.

The EU's economy commissioner confirmed that Estonia can become the 17th member of the eurozone in January next year.

This, along with the country's accession to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, will make it the most integrated nation in the Baltic Sea Region.

Mr Ansip's comments could bouy investors putting their money into Estonia's economy.
