My work experience so far has mainly been connected with economy, public finance and tax matters. In the Riigikogu, I want to stand for the increase of international competitiveness of our economy, and for Estonia to be the best place for the increase in investments and the creation of jobs. I contribute to the shaping of policies that raise the incomes of the people and increase national security. As a long-time resident of Viimsi municipality, I am well acquainted with the life and problems of Harju county. I know the local situation in the county and the main issues that need to be solved.
