"Hanna Vseviov is a top expert in the social field, who, as the head of the Department of Children and Families, has made a significant contribution to the development of the field both domestically and elsewhere, bringing the Estonian professional community to the world map internationally," Minister of Social Security Signe Riisalo (Reform) said.
Vseviov said that her goal is to bring state support closer to the people.
"My goal is to make state support for people as invisible, comfortable and proactive as possible. Recent crises also show that the social system must be more flexible and ready to respond quickly to new needs," Vseviov said.
