BC, Tallinn, 14.09.2017.Print version
The Estonian government already has clarity over the relocation of about 700 jobs from Tallinn, Minister of Public Administration Jaak Aab said on September 12th after a discussion held in the Cabinet on a plan to move altogether about 1,000 jobs out of the capital by 2019, informs LETA/BNS.

"The National Geological Service is about to relocate to Rakvere, the Private Forest Center to Rapla, one unit of Enterprise Estonia to Parnu," Aab told the evening news of ETV public television Tuesday night.


In addition, Statistics Estonia is set to relocate 50 jobs and the Tax and Customs Board another as many.


Aab said that at the Cabinet sitting earlier on the day ministers contended that the plan should be more ambitious still. "I was tasked with coming up with concrete proposals again already in October," he said.


Aab said the aim was to move jobs to county centers smaller than Tartu or Parnu.


The plan to relocate a number of government jobs to county capitals was agreed by the government in spring, the minister added.


Aab declined to be specific when asked about the estimated positive or negative financial impact of the relocation.
