Riigikogu

The Minister of Finance Jürgen Ligi replied to the interpellation concerning the future of the euro zone (No 179), submitted by Members of the Riigikogu Aadu Must, Eldar Efendijev, Ester Tuiksoo, Jüri Ratas, Kadri Simson, Kalev Kallo, Mailis Reps, Mihhail Stalnuhhin, Peeter Võsa, Priit Toobal, Tarmo Tamm, Valeri Korb, Viktor Vassiljev and Yana Toom on 11 June. 

Ligi explained that he is very critical about euro bonds. He can see no possibility of such instrument being acceptable any time soon. Ligi underlined that the European finance had seen a thorough restructuring. He added that he is in favour of establishing stricter rules for the financial matters of states and stricter control of implementation. “We have in fact reformed the whole fiscal and macroeconomic policy framework of Europe in order that budget issues and macro imbalances would not strike the welfare of people and the future of Europe,” Ligi noted. He hinted that the measures package might be given a more specific content this autumn. As its content, Ligi sees a movement towards stricter rules and stronger more apolitical sanctions. “We very much need that our economic environment would behave reasonably and would not wallow into greater debts, and would not stifle its economic growth and the economic development in general,” the Minister of Finance said when discussing the issues relating to the future of the euro zone. 

Ligi also replied to the interpellation concerning the salaries in public sector (No 184), submitted by Members of the Riigikogu Andres Anvelt, Eiki Nestor, Heljo Pikhof, Helmen Kütt, Indrek Saar, Jaak Allik, Jaan Õunapuu, Jevgeni Ossinovski, Kajar Lember, Kalev Kotkas, Karel Rüütli, Mart Meri, Neeme Suur, Rannar Vassiljev, Rein Randver, Sven Mikser and Urve Palo on 30 August.
