As noted by ERR News yesterday, the Stora Enso financial centre is set to happen this year and will employ around 60 staff.
“Our aim is to bring to Estonia the kind of investments that would create smart jobs, have a high value added and that would move our economy forward as strongly as possible,” said Mr. Selirand.
“Stora Enso’s plan to establish a strong competence centre in Tallinn, which is aimed at the automisation of processes, the implementation of new digital technologies as well as data analysis, will certainly do this,” he went on.
Enterprise Estonia is to support the development of Stora Enso’s Tallinn service centre within the main financial services centre of the group to the tune of €200,000.
This entails the transfer of work from various service centres located in Europe and India, and an increase in the local workforce as stated.
“It is pleasing that we can offer the support necessary for companies and it is also positive that the high level of the Estonian IT field is enticing large players here,” Mr. Selirand went on, adding that there is constant and active work ongoing at Enterprise Estonia in order to entice other such development centres here.
Equally as important, he says, is the propagating of existing simpler service centres into more complex developments.
“It is good if an accounting service is offered from Estonia to an entire group, but it is even better if the digitalization and automisation of accounting processes are being dealt with too,” Mr. Selirand stated.
