Economic analyst Ruta Arumäe will start working as the new Economic Adviser to the Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas on 1 December.

Ruta Arumäe has been a Macro Analyst at SEB Bank since 2003. From 2000–2003, she worked as the Chief Specialist of the Economic Analysis Division of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications. Arumäe received her research master’s degree in economics from the University of Tartu in 2008.

“Estonia’s economy needs new strength to recover. New strength is gained from new people and new ideas, but also from better combination of people and experience from various fields. The key to the country’s development is cooperation between various spheres, bearing the larger picture in mind, and I would like to give my contribution in order to improve this,” Arumäe said, commenting on her decision.

Ruta Arumäe does not belong to any political party. She replaces former Economic Adviser to the Prime Minister, Maris Lauri, who became Estonia's Minister of Finance on 3 November, after Jürgen Ligi's resignation.
