Estonia holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union from July to December 2017. It has been the custom for several years that the head of the respective country’s mission in London make a visit to Scotland during the course of the presidency. As part of this visit, Ambassador Tiina Intelmann will give a lecture exploring what Estonia has called its Digital EU Presidency, building on the country's reputation as a pioneering e-State. Ms Intelmann will also address topics including cybersecurity and government accountability, where Estonia has been at the forefront. Drawing on a wealth of diplomatic expertise, the Ambassador will reflect on how Estonia engages on the international stage.
