PM envious of salary of Enterprise Estonia’s new CEO

Estonian Prime Minister Andrus Ansip is convinced that 6,500 euros a month that the new head of Enterprise Estonia will be receiving is not justified, reported ERR.

“This is almost twice more than 2,890 euros that the head of PRIA, another agency that is distributing EU aid in Estonia, is receiving every month. Also the head of the Environment Investment Centre or KIK is receiving twice less. There can be no justification,” said the PM in the parliament’s Q&A yesterday.

Ansip added that while in general, a comparison with private sector salaries shows that heads of state enterprises are earning less than executives in the private sector, there were some organizations where top wages were unjustifiably high.

Ansip earns 3,999 euros a month as PM.
