Committee of Investigation to Identify Possible Corruption Risks in the Public Limited Company Port of Tallinn (activities terminated 14 June 2016)
The Committee investigated possible corruption in the Management Board of the public limited company Port of Tallinn, as well as means of preventing similar cases in the future.
After the restoration of independence, the population of Estonia has constantly decreased, and the purpose of the Study Committee is to identify the problems and provide solutions to improve the situation.
The state reform is necessary because Estonia has to cope with limited resources also in the future: our population is decreasing and there is a lack of labour force. Besides that, regional disparities are constantly increasing, which in its turn brings along uneven capability at the local government level.
