Government planning 'Global Estonia' network ({{commentsTotal}})

Estonian government has initiated a development of what it calls a Global Estonia network, to boost exports and bring more investement to Estonia.

The exact aim and execution of the concept is still unclear, but the government said that the objective is “the wider exchange of information and communication of state messages.“

The network will be comprised of Estonian foreign representations, honorary consuls, business delegates, fellow-countryman living and working abroad, friends of Estonia and their organizations.

The government aims to develop and widen the connection of existing channels and improve their cooperation via Global Estonia, as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, foreign representations, Enterprise Estonia, the Estonian Institute, Estonian World portal and others already have functioning networks.
