I could not agree more. Will this childish silliness end. How much money and growth is wasted on national pride. Time for Baltic leaders to grow up. ! Reply to the comment answer

He's exactly right. There's so much room for collaboration. One example is on the government side. As I understand it, each Baltic country has their own CSI (forensic lab). Why not just have one lab and they work together? I doubt any of the current labs are getting enough use, and by pooling funds into one big lab, they can afford better equipment. Same goes for many other areas, including airlines and airports.

However, I'm afraid there is not the leadership in place to implement such collaboration. Just looking at Estonia, they haven't had the courage to get rid of all the local governments in tiny towns and consolidate those at the county level. If they can't even consolidate within the country, I am doubtful they can consolidate with other countries also. Reply to the comment answer

Back to the the us, back to the us, back to the USSR, you don't know how lucky you are.

Competition is what capitalism is all about, grow up and get into the modern world of the EU. Sure cooperate on energy but the so-called cock fights are very valuable and breed innovation.

...Competition - necessary but not sufficient Competition will naturally remain and it will push us to excel, but cooperation is far more important.....

Are you fricken kidding me? Competition is everything. I guess you have never actually gone to Latvia and tried to work with them?
The business world is a dog eat dog world only the smartest and fastest survive. Socialism has failed. Take your socialistic diatribe and go to Lithuania and Latvia and try to sell it to them. Good luck. Reply to the comment answer

"Competition is what capitalism is all about..."
Well than Estonia is NOT a capitalistic country since the competition here fails badly.

It is clear, that again somebody is against to work together. Why constructive, if we can use destructive. These kind of frustrated agresive people like You, we have enough under the muslim-extremists: frustrated, filled up with hate, destructive, intrigant and violent.
In Germany we have them in the NSU. But fortunately here we mustn´t listen to You. And this is good.
Only a fully united work in between the Baltics and Europe brings us forward, if You don´t like it, go to North Corea.

Right but extremely difficult to realize this idea. There is place for cooperating, these countries should join forces in some cases. On the other hand, the mentality in each of these countries is so very different and it makes these things extremely difficult. Estonia is somehow closer to Nordic countries, Latvia has a strong influence of Russian cheating culture and Lithuanians has still left old Kingdom syndrome from history. Reply to the comment answer

All three are losers that is for sure. Two can't even ran an airliner. Estonian Air has two Finnish executives. That says all.
