As the newly appointed ambassador, I presented my credentials to President Kaljulaid in Narva on 4 September 2018. My first days in Tallinn as the Ambassador of Finland have been busy and I have experienced many new things. There will certainly be many more visits to Ida-Viru County and other regions of Estonia.
The cooperation between Finland and Estonia is close and natural. We are connected by cultural ties, geographic location and a shared operating environment. The economies of our countries are interwoven with each other inso many ways that there is a lot of communication across the Gulf of Finland every day.
The 100th jubilee celebrations of our countries have highlighted how deep and multidimensional our cooperation is. The future is looking good for us both. The joint government session held last year was an important milestone. We both benefited from the close cooperation.
I am very pleased and honoured to work as the Ambassador of Finland to Estonia. The Embassy has played an important role in the promotion of cooperation and relations between Finland and Estonia. There are many other cooperation networks that are working very well. I join this cooperation with great enthusiasm.
