Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel will arrive in Estonia for a two-day visit on August 24. Merkel will meet with Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas (Reform) as well as President Toomas Hendrik Ilves.

The chancellor will also give a press conference in Tallinn.

The prime minister has invited the German chancellor to Tallinn on several occasions. In May Rõivas, on Merkel’s personal invitation, attended a meeting of the German cabinet, where he introduced Estonia’s e-government model.

Merkel and Rõivas also met at NATO’s Warsaw summit.

The German chancellor last visited Estonia in 2008.
