Volume of Ida-Viru County investment program to total €200 million

Minister of Public Administration Jaak Aab gave an overview to the Parliament on Thursday of the government’s Ida-Viru County development program. This includes necessary investments in the infrastructure of the area as well as improving people’s quality of life.

The Ida-Viru County program will develop the region with the help of planned investments, increasing existing support measures, and directing additional assets to the region. The government decided to invest approximately €190 million in the region over the course of the next four years.

In addition, the volume of the program will be increased by €4.95 million next year and by another €10 million in 2019. In order to keep young people from moving out of the area, Aab has also proposed to pay them a monthly stipend after their graduation from vocational or higher education institutions, and starting specialized work in the region. The size of the stipend would be €300, to be paid out for two to three years.

One part of the program concerns solving the problem of empty apartment buildings. To tackle that issue, the share of the region’s projects need to be increased in the support measure concerning the reconstruction of apartment buildings.

The program aims to increase the business activity of the residents of Ida-Viru County as well as the income level in the area.
