TALLINN – The Estonian government at a Cabinet sitting on Thursday approved 14 million euros in special aid to East-Viru County to improve the competitiveness of local businesses and help preserve jobs.
"The oil shale sector is the largest employer in East-Viru County and the livelihood of thousands of families depends on it. As the outbreak has reduced both electricity consumption and global demand for oil products, government support is essential until the situation returns to normal," Prime Minister Juri Ratas said in a press release.
