Businesses remain cautious about making investment decisions

The coronavirus pandemic has inflated the economic crisis in Estonia and in the global economy in recent months and is dragging on the future outlook for businesses. Economic uncertainty has caused many long-term investments to be put on hold until more certain times. This is seen in the reduced need of companies to borrow to fund investment. In consequence the total volume of long-term loans and leases issued to companies in the month was even lower in May than in April at 134 million euros, which was some 40% less than before the crisis, meaning the average from April 2019 to March 2020. The volume of short-term loans issued was also a quarter smaller than usual. The continuing pessimism at companies is shown by the notable drop in car leases, which showed no sign of rebounding in May.
