According to Kiisler’s explanations, the aim of Ida-Viru action plan for 2010–14 is to resolve the problems of Ida-Viru county in coordination, by combining the activities planned within the framework of different branch policies with the resolving of the specific problems of particular regions so that they would function in support of one another. “The expenses of Ida-Virumaa action plan have not been specified in the state budget in previous years, and probably will not be specified in the coming years, because the state budget funds are provided under different activities within the budgets of the area of government of relevant ministries,” the Minister of Regional Affairs noted. 

Kiisler gave an overview of the activities belonging to the areas of activities of different ministries. In Kiisler’s words, the main activities in the area of government of the Minister of Regional Affairs include the implementation of the European Union structural funds and national funds in Ida-Virumaa through various measures. This includes the establishment of several industrial areas and visiting sites, the development of the oil shale centre of excellence, the development of the public urban space of Narva, Jõhvi and Kohtla-Järve, the increasing of the capacity of Narva border crossing points, and other similar projects. He added that, through the National Foundation of Civil Society, there is also a separate measure for particularly supporting the capacity of citizens’ associations in Ida-Virumaa. In addition, under the leadership of the Minister of Regional Affairs, a cross-ministry committee operates for planning county-based measures and activities in Ida-Virumaa under the structural funds of the European Union financial perspective 2014+. All ministries whose area of government involves the use of the European Union structural funds, and local governments and opinion leaders, are represented in the committee. In the course of its current activities, the committee has mapped the potential needs of Ida-Virumaa and the activities within the framework of the future financial perspective. It will be possible to reveal the results of the work of the committee in more detail when the final rules and measures regarding the European Union funds for 2014+ will have been agreed upon and the results of the work of the committee will have been integrated therein.
