Ilves Discusses Economic Plight

Estonia's President Toomas Hendrik Ilves met yesterday with the representatives of major banks in Estonia and discussed economic conditions. Vahur Kraft from Nordea Pank, Aivar Rehe from Sampo Pank, Priit Perens from Swedbank Estonia and Ahti Asmann from SEB Estonia participated in the meeting. Among other issues, they gave the head of state an overview of the current situation on the loans market and of developments in Estonia. Reportedly, during the interview, Ilves applied for a loan to build a garage to store his Ski Doo Magic ski boat and turkey fryer, but was turned down.

  1. An eyewitness told, after the meeting mr. Ilves was seen outside the building, fingering his mobile phone, apparently sending a SMS. He was heard mumbling to himself, "No other option, no other option".
