2008 Article IV Consultation for Estonia: Conclusions of the Mission;
To correct for past policy slippages, the fiscal position should be strengthened over the medium term. In this context, the government's proposal to freeze the state budget wage bill for the next two years is a welcome first step and should be extended to other levels of government. The freeze would create incentives to eliminate inefficiencies in government. It would also send a strong signal for wage moderation in the private sector. More broadly, the mission welcomes the authorities' intention to review expenditure and revenue policies in the medium term budget framework with an eye to identifying savings. Priority should be given to savings that lead to a more efficient allocation of resources.
