At the same time, the Prime Minister stressed that although the greater domestic reforms have been completed, o 會場佈置ur work is not done yet. We did not expect anyone else to make decisions for us or pressure us into reforms,” said Ansip, admitting that the rapid reforms made people make great decisions and even greater sacrifices. The Prime Minister praised his fellow compatriots who have been open to changes. " 591The people wanted and supported the changes,” said Ansip. In his presentation "How One Former Republic of the Soviet Union Became One of the Countries with the Freest Economy in the World,” the Prime Minister cited the Estonian free trade approach as the main reason. “We allowed foreign companies to enter Eston 永慶房屋ia and provide competition here,” said the Prime Minister, admitting that the transfer to openness was not entirely painless, but we understood that this was necessary in order to rejoin the West. In his speech, Ansip quoted Professor Razeen Sally from the London School of Economics and Doctor Magnus Feldmann from Harvard Univer 烤肉食材sity, who have said: “unilateral free trade became the Estonian equivalent to the Nike strategy – Just do it. This quickly became a significant international trademark of Estonia – the Estonian equivalent to the Finnish so-called Nokia-effect”. The head of the government also explained the high place held by Estonia in the ranking of e 關鍵字行銷conomic freedom with our decision to adopt a very simple and transparent tax system. He also stated that it was not our tax policy alone that brought investments to Estonia.

Due to efficient and fast security measures, we were able to neutralise the attacks, but learned a valuable lesson here anyway – cyber security is a new measure of security, which must be actively engaged in both on the domestic and international level,” said Ansip.To sum up, Ansip said that although at the moment, the GDP of Estonia makes up 72 per cent of the av 術後面膜erage of the EU, we would like to, and not in the too distant future, join the club of the rich countries of Europe. “We are not going to rest on our laurels,” Prime Minister Andrus Ansip assured.Read the full speech by the Prime Minister at:   .msgcontent .wsharing ul li { text-indent: 0; } 分享 Facebook Plurk YAHOO! 情趣用品  .
