Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid visits e-Residency
Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid visited the e-Residency office today to discuss how Estonia’s e-Residency community is growing around the world.
We discussed how e-residents are using the programme to grow their companies, what contribution they are making to our digital nation in return, and what more we can do to improve e-Residency.
We also looked at feedback from e-residents, including a Ukrainian entrepreneur who shared his difficulties accessing traditional banking in Estonia.
In particular, we discussed with the President how e-Residency can:
- Improve access to a wider choice of e-services, such as banking.
- Provide a new community network, which is launching this year and will help e-residents connect, learn and grow their companies.
- Support more cross-border trade between e-residents and Estonians.
President Kaljulaid is travelling to South Korea next month and will officially open our new e-Residency Collection Centre in Seoul while she is there.
In anticipation, the highest number of applications for e-Residency are currently coming from South Korea.
