In the late 1990s, a number of foreign banking groups made their market entries into the banking systems of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Today, these international institutions dominate the banking systems in these countries, thereby wielding considerable power. Prof. Dr. Jan Körnert (University of Greifswald) first examines the economic and political influence of such foreign banks within the three Baltic nation states. He then goes on to show how these foreign-controlled banks could further extend their political reach to the European Union.
In addition, Peeter Luikmel (Bank of Estonia) is going to give a presentation on "Features of Estonian Economics". The presentation highlights the main elements of the Estonian economy and financial sector.
